Translator’s note: I am posting the following excerpt that quotes a statement of Nasrin Sotoudeh – something that has not been included in the coverage of German media on this event so far. The German media are obviously still struggling to get the facts right, and I wish them a quick success, for the sake of truth.

Ali-Zamani was a member of the banned underground movement of the People’s Mujahedin, Rahmanipour belonged to the “Monarchist Council”. Rahmanipour’s lawyer said that her client had not participated in the protests. He had been arrested two months prior to the disputed presidential elections at the age of 19. She was not allowed to defend him in the “show trials” in June. His confession was violently coerced. The opposition group residing in the United States declared that Rahmanipour had provided the radio station of the “Monarchist Council” with news and information.
