The Honourable Head of the Supreme Judicial Council of the Islamic Republic of Iran

Respectfully, I, the undersigned, Shamsi Khadem, am an old and frail woman of 90 years old.  My daughter, Molouk Khadem, daughter of Mousa, 68 years old, my sole caregiver, has been arrested on 2/5/1362 [24 July 1983] without having committed any crime, and she is imprisoned in Evin. I beg you to have her file reviewed and to free her, so that my eyes can be illumined by seeing her during these last hours of my life, and so that I can pray for you with tranquility of mind.

Humble and bereaved,  

Shamsi Khadem
