Neda's Fiancee: She Started Attending Protests Deeply Outraged by the Election Results
The fiancee of Neda Agha-Soltan spoke with the media today about her death.
Caspian Makan said that Neda predicted her death moments before her murder.
Caspian Makan, the fiance of the young Iranian woman shot last week, tells Al Jazeera of her last moments. “Neda”, which is the Farsi word for voice, was allegedly shot dead by a Basij soldier in Tehran last week.
Her fiancee said:
She was reportedly passionate about traveling and had gone with friends to Dubai, Turkey and Thailand. The young Iranian was also an accomplished singer who was taking piano lessons, according to Panahi.
Soltan was not a hardcore activist, but had started attending the mass protests because she felt deeply outraged by the election results.
“She couldn’t stand the injustice of it all,” Panahi told the L.A. Times.
Revolutionary Road posted more on her fiancee’s interview:
Neda Agha-Soltan, who was shot dead by the Islamic regime of Iran’s security forces on Saturday 20 June, wanted freedom for everyone.
In interviews with the press, her fiancee, Caspian Makan, said ‘Neda was never supportive of either group [referring to the factions in the regime]. She wanted freedom; Freedom for everyone.‘
Her murder has become a rallying point across the world.
He went on to say: “She was near the area, a few streets away, from where the main protests were taking place, near the Amir-Abad area. She was with her music teacher, sitting in a car and stuck in traffic.
“She was feeling very tired and very hot. She got out of the car for just a few minutes.
“That’s when she was shot dead. Eyewitnesses and video footage of the shooting clearly show that probably Basij paramilitaries in civilian clothing deliberately targeted her. Eyewitnesses said they clearly targeted her and she was shot in the chest.
“She passed away within a few minutes. People tried to take her to the nearest hospital, the Shariati hospital. But it was too late.”
Makan said Neda’s family struggled to persuade the Iranian authorities to release her body.
“She was taken to a morgue outside Tehran. The officials from the morgue asked if they could use parts of her corpse for body transplants for medical patients,” he said.
“They didn’t specify what exactly they intended to do. Her family agreed because they wanted to bury her as soon as possible.
“We buried her in the Behesht-e-Zahra cemetery in southern Tehran. They asked us to bury her in this section where it seemed the authorities had set aside spaces for graves for those killed during the violent clashes in Tehran last week.”
The regime banned her family from holding a public funeral.
The Iranian regime murdered Neda on Saturday at the democracy protests in Tehran.
