In 1981 Maryam Ghodsi-Mo'ab, a 16 years old high school student activist,
was arrested and went through extreme torture in the southern city of
Ahwaz, Iran. She was condemned to death.
Being a virgin, Maryam was "force married" in accordiance to a religious
decree. Virgin women prisoners must as a rule be deflowered before their
execution, "lest they go to Paradise." Therefore, the night before Maryam's
execution, a Guard came to her cell to consummate their marriage by
forcing his way into the cunt of the terrified girl.
On the following day, Maryam's chest received eight bullets while she was
tied to a post.
Afterwards a marriage certificate was written out and sent to her family
along with a box of sweets.
