Brain Death Of Mahsa Amini, Girl Arrested In Tehran


Human Rights in Iran – Friday, September 16, 2022 – After Tehran’s Morality Police officers intervened in Mahsa (Zhina) Amini’s hijab (veiling) and transferred her to the detention center, she was brain dead due to brain damage at Kasra Hospital.

According to the report of Human Rights in Iran, Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, born in 2000, from Sanandaj, the capital of Kurdistan Province, was arrested in the past days by Morality Police officers in Tehran for allegedly not observing the hijab. Two hours after being transferred to the detention center of this security organ located on Vozara Street, she suffered severe brain and heart problems, and after being sent to Kasra Hospital in Tehran, she faced brain death.

Mahsa Amini and her brother, Kiarash Amini, had traveled from Sanandaj to Tehran to visit their relatives. She was arrested violently at around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13, near the Shahid (Martyr) Haghani metro station, by the Ershad (Guidance) Patrol officers under the pretext of (not observing proper coverage),” a well-informed source told the reporter of Human Rights in Iran, in this regard.

The source also added: “After the protest by Mahsa’s brother Kiarash Amini, he was told that she had been transferred to the detention center to pass a briefing class and would be released in an hour. However, two hours after Mahsa’s arrest and her transfer to the Security Police Building located on Vozara Street, she went into a coma and was admitted to the intensive care unit of Kasra Hospital. After Mahsa’s family went to the hospital, doctors announced that Mahsa had suffered a stroke (brain death).”

“When Mahsa and other detainees were transferred to the detention center of the Morality Police Building, there was a clash between the Ershad (Guidance) Patrol officers and the detainees, which also resulted in Mahsa being beaten. After Ershad’s Patrol car arrived at the detention center, the clash happened again, and this time Mahsa passed out. Eventually, the ambulance arrived at the detention center with a lot of delays to transport the young girl to the hospital and she was taken to the hospital,” the source noted.

The person with knowledge of this matter reiterated: “When Kiarash Amini waits for his sister in front of Vozara Building, he sees an ambulance leaving the building. However, when he asks the guard soldier why, he says that one of their soldiers was wounded, and after waiting about 30 minutes, by showing Mahsa’s photo to the other girls released from the building’s detention center, he realizes that the ambulance was carrying Mahsa’s body.”

“From the time of Mahsa’s arrest until her family found her in a coma, it took only two hours, and now, at the doctors’ diagnosis, Mahsa has suffered a heart attack and a stroke, and her family has been prevented from delivering rescues,” the informed person added

The Public Relations Office of the Police Force issued a statement on September 15 (2022), claiming that the news published in this regard by some media outlets was not true and asserting: “Mahsa Amini, who was directed to one of the police departments in Greater Tehran for justification and training, has suddenly suffered from a heart condition among other guided individuals and was immediately taken to the hospital in cooperation with the police and emergency services and is being treated.”

Furthermore, Ali Mojtahedzadeh, the lawyer, published a story on his personal page about the statement issued by the Information Center of Tehran’s Police Headquarters, saying: “The Tehran police’s announcement about Mahsa Amini is not justified or acceptable. The police must prove that Ms. Amini suddenly suffered a heart condition without the involvement of the officers.”
