My dear wife and precious Ziba and Mahta and other family members, mother, brothers, sisters and friends,

It is now 10:30 p.m., and we are in the Revolutionary Court where they have brought us for execution. I bid farewell to all of you and entrust you all to the Great God, and wish you happiness and success.

Farewell – Dr. Vafaie

They have not allowed us to see or speak to Messrs. Aalami, Mousavi and Mokarram. Nobody is here except the guards.

I am pleased with my wife and request others not to cause her any grievance. I kiss her and Ziba from afar.
