Neda's family forced out

An unnamed reporter for The Guardian in Tehran is reporting the family of the woman killed last Saturday may have been forced out of their home.

Neighbours said that her family no longer lives in the four-floor apartment building on Meshkini Street, in eastern Tehran, having been forced to move since she was killed. The police did not hand the body back to her family, her funeral was cancelled, she was buried without letting her family know and the government banned mourning ceremonies at mosques, the neighbours said.

“We just know that they [the family] were forced to leave their flat,” a neighbour said. The Guardian was unable to contact the family directly to confirm if they had been forced to leave.

First, the government refused to let the family hold a memorial for their murdered daughter, then they demanded another victim's family pay $3000 for the bullet that killed their son before the body would be returned, and now this.

They're also setting up "special courts" to try demonstrators. Wow, a frightened government is setting up ad hoc courts to try people in secrecy. That ring any bells?
