Mother of Slain Blogger Sattar Beheshti Speaks Out

Iranian blogger Sattar Beheshti was arrested on October 30, 2012 by the Iranian cyber police. Sattar died in custody, allegedly from severe torture. His family was informed of his death one week later, on November 6. Gohar Eshghi, Sattar's mother, recorded this message in her son's memory for the Persian New Year in March 2013.

Note: At 3:45 and 3:49 the word "Rigi" is mistakenly translated as sand. Ms. Eshghi was actually referring to Abdolmalek Rigi, the late head of Baluch separatist group Jundallah.

What Tavaana Students Have to Say

The best aspects of this course are that it is up-to-date by the level of international standards. It could not be equaled in Iran… it made me acquainted with computer hardware and software, Internet connectivity, useful internet programs, and malwares and viruses and ways of defending against them.
