The Piran’s family home was ransacked and besieged by the regime’s security forces because of their refusal to renounce their son’s political activities. Their son, Payam, was arrested on the charges of carrying a camera for his fellow student during a protest. He is sentenced to a six years prison term and is barred from participating in any social activities for 10 years.
