Reported Iran International TV, Maryam’s daughter participated in the execution of her mother.
The son, who was six years old when his father was murdered, refuses to forgive or accept “Diya” (blood money) from his mother.
Maryam was sentenced to death after being proved in the Qisas indictment, which has the literal meaning of “eye for eye”.
In Qisas, the relatives of the victim must be present at the execution, where they themselves carry out the execution.
Sources told the local human rights institution that since the murder, Maryam’s child has been in the care of her father’s family.
For 13 years, the father’s family has always said that his parents are dead, it is quoted The Sun Tuesday (23/3/2021).
