She talked about the execution of Navid Afkari, who was a wrestler who was tortured and sentenced to death by the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran for a murder that occurred during the 2018 Iranian protest. Navid Afkari was executed on 12 September in the Adel-Abad prison in Shiraz.
Afkari was charged with murdering Hasan Turkman, a government water and sewage department security agent during the 2018 Iranian protest. For this claim, a confession was issued by Afkari, which later claimed he had been tortured into making the false confession. In this same case, Afkari’s brothers were also sentenced to 54 and 27 years in prison.
