Nemat Mullah, an Iranian Kurdish human rights activist and journalist who produced the documentary “Ameneh, Eqbal and Zanyar”, said that the reason for making it was the suffering he had endured and the problems that the Moradi’s family had faced.
“Unfortunately, the events of all the years after the revolution were not what people thought,” the Iranian Kurdish journalist said in an interview with the Campaign for the Defense of Political and Civil Prisoners.
This government brought fear and execution to the family. Those who demanded freedom and were forced to leave Iran were either assassinated or returned to Iran hostage and abducted by Iranian authorities in various ways. “We have witnessed it all these years.”
Nemat Mullah says about how he met Eqbal Moradi: “In 2014, I met Eqbal Moradi for the first time in the campaign for the defense of political and civil prisoners. He was an active member of the human rights community, especially in the defense of political and civil prisoners. “I remember those days very well, those were the days when I was a newcomer to this institution and I was working as a journalist and human rights defender.” “We have always been in touch with each other,” Nemat said of his relationship with Zanyar and Loghman Moradi. I repeatedly asked them to sit down one day and do an interview about their own situation. “Each time they refused to do the interview, saying that others were more important than me.”
In the first days of spring 2015, when he decided to leave the Kurdistan region, Nemat Mullah was a guest of Eqbal Moradi’s family for a few days and interviewed them.
“This is one of eight documentaries about political prisoners and foreign assassinations by the Iranian government that will be broadcast for the first time,” he said.
Nemat had tried to publish the documentaries many times after facing many problems in Europe, but according to him, the Iranian government’s pressure on his family, had kept him away from this.
He said: “After the assassination of Qader Ghaderi, a very close friend of mine, I decided to finish the documentaries, but I heard that Mr. Iqbal Moradi was also assassinated,”
Nemat adds: “It was on July 17, 2018 that Iqbal Moradi was assassinated in Kurdistan of Iraq. “Nearly two months later, Zanyar and Loghman Moradi were executed with another prisoner, Ramin Hossein Panahi.”
The Kurdish journalist said about the conditions for making the documentary:
“The filming and interviewing conditions were very difficult for me and Moradi’s family, The family was repeatedly assassinated and tortured.
