A group of Iranian artists have no legitimacy in the trial of Dariush Mehrjui's murder

A group of Iranian artists believe that the court’s handling of Dariush Mehrjui’s murder case lacks legitimacy.

A group of artists inside and outside Iran, in collective letters, considered the court’s handling of the murder of Dariush Mehrjui and Vahideh Mohammadifar as a theatrical show and a continuation of governmental oppression.

The letter states that they do not see any legitimacy in the court’s handling of the murder of Dariush Mehrjui and Vahideh Mohammadifar, which hastily concluded based on incomplete investigations and flawed indictments.

The news of the murder of prominent Iranian filmmaker Dariush Mehrjui and his wife, screenwriter Vahideh Mohammadifar, was released on early Monday, October 15th, and shook the Iranian society, especially the cultural and artistic community.

The signatories of this letter also called for an open civil society to persistently demand justice and stated that in such crises, protest, disclosure, and constant pressure for justice, apart from retribution and violence, is an ethical, individual, and social responsibility that requires each of us to bear its burden.
