Iranwire - June 15, 2023
<<Slain Child's Mother Under House Arrest
Kian Pirfalak's mother, Mahmonir Molaei, has been under house arrest since Sunday, June 11, IranWire reveals. Reliable sources confirmed that the Islamic Republic's security forces have surrounded the residence of Kian Pirfalak's parents and seized all their household belongings. Agents are also controlling nearby streets and have blocked any filming in the area. No information is available regarding the whereabouts and wellbeing of Maysam Pirfalak, Kian's father, and Kian's young brother, adding to growing concerns for their safety. Pouya Molaei-Rad, 19, a cousin of Kian Pirfalak's mother, Mahmonir Molaei, was killed by gunfire from security forces. The incident was made all the worse because June 11 marked the tenth birthday of Kian Pirfalak, who was killed on November 16, 2022, during nationwide protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody. <Agents of the Intelligence Ministry and security agents did their best to prevent the birthday commemoration for Kian,> a source has told IranWire. <They threatened Mahmonir and told her that 'If you do not stop these ceremonies from taking place, we will kill your little son Radin and your husband Meysam,'> the source added. Since the loss of her son, Mahmonir Molaei has held the agents of the Islamic Republic accountable for Kian's death.>>

<<Slain Kian Pirfalak's Relative Killed by Agents on Kian's Birthday
Pouya Molaei-Rad, a cousin of Kian Pirfalak's mother, Mahmonir Molaei, was shot and killed by agents of the Islamic Republic near the cemetery where Kian is laid to rest. The shooting occurred amid threats made against Mahmonir, warning her that if she proceeded with celebrating her son's 10th birthday, her husband and their younger son would also be targeted. Kian Pirfalak was nine years old when security forces shot and killed him in the back of his family's car, on November 16, 2022. Numerous reports on social media and various media outlets have confirmed the death of Pouya Molaei-Rad, 19, who was visiting Kian's grave at the cemetery in the village of Parchestan, located in the county of Izeh, Khuzestan province. According to accounts received by IranWire, government agents physically assaulted Pouya at the site. Attempting to then intimidate the agents, Pouya entered his car and drove towards them, but when he stopped and exited the vehicle, he was met with a hail of gunfire, leading to his death.
The incident took place during preparations for Kian's 10th birthday ceremony. Kian would have celebrated his birthday on June 11. Mizan, the Iranian judiciary's news agency, confirmed the deaths of a policeman and a civilian during the ceremonies marking Kian's birthday, but has not disclosed any identities. Additionally, there have been reports of arrests within Kian's family in Izeh, with security agents surrounding the village of Parchestan and deploying forces in the city. Meanwhile, the government's panic over Kian Pirfalak's 10th birthday ceremonies has led to increased harassment of his family, relatives and others in the city of Izeh in Khuzestan province. According to an informed source, a person who had made a special cake for Kian's 10th birthday was arrested on June 10 in Izeh. <Since Wednesday, June 7, agents of the Intelligence Ministry had put Kian's family under enormous pressure,> a friend of the family told IranWire. <They [the authorities] were and still are very angry about the documentary The Tulips, made by Farzan Deljou which was published by IranWire. Before this documentary was published, they put a lot of pressure on Mahmonir and members of her family and insisted that this video must not be published. <They thought that because it was called a documentary, Kian's family must have provided videos and evidence for making it. They were threatened repeatedly that this film must not be published. Mahmonir and members of the family continually answered that they had no say in whether it would be published or not. But the Intelligence Ministry took the issue very seriously and I don't know what exactly they were thinking about this film,> the friend said. <Agents of the Intelligence Ministry and security agents did their best to prevent the birthday ceremony for Kian. Even on Friday, two days before the birthday of this child who was killed during the protests, they threatened Mahmonir and told her that 'If you do not stop these ceremonies from taking place, we will kill your little son Radin and your husband Meysam,'> the family friend added. According to this source, agents of the Intelligence Ministry were also trying to stop plans by Iranians abroad to celebrate Kian's birthday.>>

<<Young Man Shot Dead as Iranian Authorities Try to Silence Justice-Seeking Families
Iranian authorities' killing of a young man, Pouya Molaeirad-amid a memorial for his nin-year-old cousin Kian Pirfalak, also believed to have been killed by state security forces-marks an escalation in the Iranian government's crusade to silence families seeking justice for loved ones who were killed amid the state's violent repression of anti-state protests. <The Islamic Republic has given state security forces an open hand to shoot, maim and kill anyone accused of criticizing its policies,> said Hadi Ghaemi, executive director of the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI).
<Iranians cannot even mourn their dead, without risking the wrath of the Islamic Republic's killing machine,> Ghaemi said. <World leaders must raise the cost to the Islamic Republic of its increasingly cruel and unlawful violence against the people of Iran,> Ghaemi added.
The Pirfalak family is among more than 500 families whose loved ones, including dozens of children, were killed amid the Iranian government's violent repression of anti-state protests that were at their height between September 2022 and January 2023 following the death in state custody of Mahsa Jina Amini on September 16 after she was arrested for her allegedly inappropriate hijab. Last week more than 30 relatives of slain street protesters, mostly grieving mothers, who had gathered to remember and honor their loved ones at their graves in the Iranian cities of Saqqez and Bukan were arbitrarily detained by state security forces on June 9. After being detained for approximately 12 hours, they were released by being transported to a deserted road between the cities of Saqqez and Divandareh and left there alone in the middle of the night. The Iranian government has a long, documented history of persecuting family members seeking justice for victims of state violence.
Pirfalak Family Severely Persecuted for Blaming State Forces for Kian's Killing
Kian Pirfalak was just nine-years-old when he was killed amid Iranian authorities' violent repression of street protests in the city of Izeh, Khuzestan province in November 2022, when they opened fire on his family's car, also seriously injuring Kian's father, according to the family. After Kian's mother, Zeinab Molairad, publicly disputed the government's narrative about the killing of her son at his funeral that month, she was fired from her job as a teacher and the family came under severe pressure to be silent, yet they refused to acquiesce. After a trial completely lacking any semblance of due process, an Iranian court sentenced to death a street protester, Mojahed Kourkour, for Kian's killing. In response, the Pirfalak family notarized a statement declaring that their son was killed by state security forces and posted it on social media this month. <We declare that we witnessed the killing of our child and the injuring of Meysam Pirfalak (the father) by the shooting of judiciary agents on our private vehicle and we have filed a complaint against themů> said the statement.>>
