Fatemeh Ghozat, 16, was allegedly beaten and then murdered by her uncle Mojtaba Namdar after speaking out against his abuse on May 22nd.
Daily Mail (h/t CHB) The victim’s mother is now speaking out after Ghozat was released on bail just two weeks after the incident, Iran International TV reported.
Speaking to Iran International TV, Bariha Rahmani said: ‘He threw my girl out of the window in front of my eyes, and then placed her body in my hands. ‘He has now been released on bail and walks free. He threatens my son, and tells him, “It’s your turn now!”
I’m afraid for myself and my children. ‘Tell me, in what other country in the world, when a murder has occurred and all the evidence points to the fact it was murder, would the accused be released on bail two weeks later?’
Relatives insist that Mojtaba Namdar confessed to killing Fatemeh in front of all their neighbours before emergency services arrived at the crime scene. However, after the girl was pronounced dead, Mojtaba allegedly retracted the confession and claimed there had been no witnesses.
Legal analyst and Journalist at Iran International TV, Nargess Tavassolian said: ‘This case is very strange, it is not known why the uncle was released after only two weeks.
