Reza Pahlavi's message on the murder of jailed dissident

My Dear Compatriots,

Seven long and terrible years of torture, abuse and maltreatment, tragically ended yesterday for our courageous compatriot, Akbar Mohammadi, with his murderat the hands of his jailers, who carried out the execution order issued by thesecurity apparatus of the criminal clerical regime.

Akbar Mohammadi was a prominent student dissident and among the most courageous and important symbols of constitutional monarchists, who, in spite of the deafening silence of many among our opposition and diaspora, bravely endureduntold sacrifices, spearheading our struggle against the evil autocracy calledthe Islamic Republic.

Akbar’s name will forever be inscribed in the annals of our history, highlighting our people’s struggle in general, and that of the students’movement in particular. His courage, dedication and ultimate sacrifice will serve as a beacon lighting our way in our fight for liberty!
