<Persian social media is full of young people who say they were shot in the eye by security forces>

A variety of situations (May 2 - April 5, 2023) when the basij; irgc or secret police
heinously did their blinding crime.

Iranwire - May 2, 2023 - By Aida Ghajar
<<Blinding as a Weapon (37): Bringing the Fight to the Judiciary
In the series of reports <Blinding as a Weapon,> IranWire presents the victims' stories told in their own words. Some have posted their stories, along with their names and pictures, on social media. Others, whose real names shall not be disclosed to protect their safety, have told their stories to IranWire, which can make their identities and medical records available to international legal authorities and the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
This is the story of Seyed Matin Manani, a young man of 25 who lost both eyes in the early days of the 2022 protests. He is one of the few victims of the security forces who have lodged a complaint with the Iranian judiciary as a way to continue the fight. The first protests rocked Sari, capital of the northern province of Mazandaran, on September 20, 2022. Matin was at the entrance to Sabzeh Meydan Park when security agents attacked the protesters. Matin was trying to escape when the security agents shot at him. Matin lost both eyes. His face, arms, chest and body were filled with pellets. After reviewing his medical records, experts said that he must have been shot from both sides. For more than six months, the doctors have tried to remove the pellets from his body and treat his eyes, but many projectiles remain in his body, his hands still ache and he is blinded in both eyes. Matin was a part-time university student. His father is a veteran of the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s who worked as a house painter until an accident forced him to retire. Before the shooting, Matin and his brother Mobin were the family's breadwinners, but now, after losing both eyes, it is impossible for the young man to work and to complete his studies. There are still two pellets lodged near the blood vessels to his brain, but the doctors have decided that it is safer to let them stay where they are. More pellets also remain in his hands and chest.
Complaint with the Judiciary
In an interview with the newspaper Shargh, Majid Kaveh, the lawyer who represents Matin, reported that his complaint has been registered with the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor's Office in Sari. He said he had asked the court to conduct a comprehensive review of Matin's medical records and take legal action against his assailant or assailants and order the payment of blood money to the young man as compensation. This year, the highest sum of blood money awarded by a court to a person was 900 million tomans, but the amount depends on variables such as gender. Some of the security forces' victims who have filed complaints say that they are not seeking money. <I don't need money,> one of them tells IranWire. <I am even aware that I might not get anywhere in court, but challenging the judiciary is important to me. For me, it's like continuing the fight. Through this same judiciary establishment, I want to show that I am not retreating.> IranWire's legal adviser Musa Barzin Khalifehlou says that the victims can at most be awarded blood money because, even if the assailant is identified, he would not accept that he has willfully targeted the eyes.
However, according to Article 290 of the Islamic Penal Code, acts such as shooting at a crowd is considered an <intentional> crime, even if no specific person is targeted. Provision A of this article states that the perpetrator's act is intentional if the perpetrator has deliberately acted to commit a crime >against a specific or non-specific person or a person in a gathering of people.> And Provision B states: <if the perpetrator commits an action intentionally and it typically leads to a crime or the like, although he did not intend to commit the crime and the like, he was aware that the action can typically lead to a crime or the like.> <Even if you disregard Provision A, shooting at protesters' eyes undoubtedly falls under Provision B, and it is a crime,> Khalifehlou says. <Jurists believe that such shootings are intentional and the punishment is qisas (retaliation in kind); but even if qisas is dismissed, blood money and prison still apply. But of course nobody would confess that he has fired willfully.> According to Article 614 of the Islamic Penal Code, <Anyone who commits an assault and battery against someone else that results in damaging or breaking or disabling a victim's limb or causes him a permanent illness or defect or loss of a sense or ability or loss of mind, in cases where qisas is not possible, if his act disrupts public order and the safety of the society or it is thought that it emboldens the offender or others [to commit assault again], he shall be sentenced to two to five years' imprisonment; and if the victim applies for it, shall be sentenced to diya (blood money) as well.> However, if the court decides that shooting at the protesters' eyes is <quasi-intentional,> the shooter would be sentenced to pay blood money but would not be given any prison sentence.
Why Is Lodging a Complaint Important?
Khalifehlou points out that, according to the 1994 code on the use of firearms by Iranian armed forces, the agents cannot immediately use firearms to suppress a crowd. They must first warn people, then they can use things like teargas, pepper spray and tasers and, as the last resort, they can use firearms. But as testimonies by protesters, reports and videos show, the security forces have started firing at people at the beginning of confrontations. Considering the uncertain prospects of success of complaining to the judiciary, a victim might ask: Why lodge a complaint?
Many victims desperately need money for their medical treatments, but there are other considerations.
<More than anything else, demanding justice and challenging the judiciary is a way to continue the fight in a non-violent way,> says Khalifehlou. <Then, we need to document violations of human rights. But something that might interest this group of victims is following up these complaints at international tribunals and organizations when actions inside the country don't lead anywhere.> <The other point is the increase in the volume of evidence. When the judiciary is challenged and dozens of complaints are lodged, judiciary officials cannot simply ignore them. In any case, in some branches of the judiciary there are people who do follow up on complaints.> <Suppose a person lodges a complaint and claims that he has lost an eye,> says Khalifehlou. <The judge writes a letter to the forces of law and order and they reply. Then the case goes to Iran's Legal Medicine Organization and they reply as well. Records of these follow-ups are important documents that register violations of human rights, and, eventually, they might lead to more sanctions or to the expulsion of the Islamic Republic from human rights commissions. These documents are very important for the UN fact-finding commission.> The lawyer points out that if enough complaints are lodged in various provinces of Iran, they can serve as evidence for international organizations that shooting at the protesters' eyes has been a systematic policy: <The usual question is this: Why do you talk of law when we're at war? I must say that these two are not incompatible. I'm not saying that you should not go to the street and just file complaints. Go to the streets and sue as well. It does not cost much. Lodging a complaint is a continuation of the fight but at another level.> >>

<<'My life's destroyed' - Palestinian teen blinded by Israeli sound grenade
Palestinian teen Omar Asi said his 'life is destroyed' after being blinded by a sound grenade thrown by Israeli soldiers. Omar was out shopping for his family when the Israeli occupation forces raided Qarawa Bani Hassan village, northwest of Salfit in the occupied West Bank>>
Opinion by Gino: It are not only the israeli facist forces that are using blinding as a weapon, the facistic iranian dictatorship joined their heinous  methods of criminal acting.

<<Blinding As A Weapon (27): A Father Of Two Shot In Both Eyes And Killed
In the series of reports <Blinding As A Weapon,> IranWire presents the victims' stories told in their own words. Some have posted their stories, along with their names and pictures, on social media. Others, whose real names shall not be disclosed to protect their safety, have told their stories to IranWire, which can make their identities and medical records available to international legal authorities. This is the story of Seyed Javad Mousavi, a father of two young children who shot in both eyes and killed during mourning ceremonies held for another protester murdered by the security forces. After killing Mousavi, the security forces threw his body next to a water canal and laughed while riding their motorcycles nearby.
A lifeless body on the ground with outstretched arms and closed eyes; that's the only image of Mousavi we have after he was shot. In a short video from the scene, we can hear the laughter of security forces riding motorcycles nearby. It happened in the central city of Isfahan on November 17, 2022, during the mourning ceremonies marking the 40th day after protester Ahmad Shokrollahi was killed by paramilitary Basiji forces. Before going to work at Sepahan Steel Tubes and Pipes Factory, where he was a manager, Mousavi took to Instagram to call on protesters to attend the ceremonies for Shokrollahi. Mousavi left the factory early to join mourners in the congregation hall where the ceremonies took place. A large crowd of protesters then headed toward Shokrollahi's resting place, chanting anti-government slogans.
<Don't be Afraid....I Know him>
Security forces lobbed teargas into the crowd before officers on motorcycles chased the protesters in alleyways. Mousavi and his friends took shelter in the home of an elderly woman who had left the door to her yard open for the fleeing demonstrators. Mousavi was still in the yard when a member of the security forces climbed onto the door and shot him in the eyes. An eyewitness says Mousavi knew the assailant and said, <Don't be afraid. He is [the name]. I know him.> But the shooter pulled the trigger, without hesitating. The protesters managed to escape, while more security forces arrived and took away Mousavi's body. Mousavi was born in 1983 and was the father of a boy and a girl aged nine and five, respectively. According to people close to him, he started his activism against the Islamic Republic in the 2000s. During the widespread protests that followed the disputed 2009 presidential election, he was detained for two days. The young man was a well-known person in Isfahan's Khvorasgan district. He often engaged in conversations with members of the Basij force and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps to try to open their eyes to the truth about the regime. In the end, he was shot dead by one of them.
Burial under the Security Agents' Watchful Eyes
For three days, the authorities lied to Mousavi's family and friends about what had happened to him. Once, they said Mousavi had been shot in his leg; another time, they said that he was hospitalized. Finally, on November 20, Mousavi was laid to rest amid the heavy presence of security agents and plainclothesmen, but his family was not allowed to bury him in the cemetery of their choosing. Mousavi's mother insisted on seeing the face of the body before the burial because she was afraid it might not be her son. Security forces also attended the mourning ceremonies marking the seventh day after the burial to prevent protesters from joining the family.
Promises and Rumors
Mousavi's death certificate states that he was hit by a <hard projectile> that damaged the brain tissue. It remains unclear what kind of weapon fired the unspecified projectile. After the burial, security and intelligence agents offered money to Mousavi's relatives and promised they would provide for his children on the condition that they remain silent about the circumstances of the man's death, according to a friend. The family rejected these offers, and the security forces spread a rumor in the neighborhood that Mousavi had been an intelligence agent for Israel and that he and his friends planned to plant bombs on the night he was shot. They also claimed that one of the conspirators killed Mousavi because he had not shared the money equally among the plotters.>>

<<Blinding as a Weapon (30): Victim Breaks Silence Years after Losing Eye
This is the story of Matin Hassani, a 23-year-old man who lost an eye during nationwide protests more than three years ago. He recently took to Instagram page to tell his story.
In November 2019, Iran was swept by demonstrations sparked by fuel price hikes. It has been reported that 1,500 protesters lost their lives in one of the most violent crackdowns by the Islamic Republic on protests. At the time, Hassani was living with his mother in Bukan, a Kurdish town in West Azerbaijan province, and was studying architecture in the provincial capital, Tabriz. Hassani celebrated his 19th birthday on November 13 with his mother, who had been raising her only child alone for seven years, and his fiance. Four days later, he joined protests on the town's main square, where he was shot by security forces amid smoke and gunfire. A riot police squad was deployed on the square, and snipers were positioned on the roofs. Several pellets grazed Hassni's legs and stomach. One projectile penetrated one of his eyes, split the eyeball and lodged behind the retina, causing permanent blindness to the eye. Protesters carried the young man to a nearby street as his eye was bleeding profusely. Pain was excruciating, and Hassni wrote on his Instagram page that he felt like his <eyeball had been pushed out of its socket.> Hassni was transferred overnight to a hospital in Tabriz, where he underwent three surgeries over the course of one week, which caused damage to his cornea and retina. His family then decided to bring him to Tehran for further treatment. All the clinics they visited there recommended that his eye be drained. But Hassani and his mother refused, and an eye surgeon informed them he could save the eye but could not restore its sight. After oil was injected behind his retina, the man had to lie on his belly for several days to allow the retinal to adhere properly. But Hassani was unable to follow this requirement.
Handcuffed and Taken To Detention in a Wheelchair
Security officers stormed the hospital, handcuffed Hassni and took him in a wheelchair to a police station. Accused of being a <troublemaker> to the public, he was interrogated, slapped and insulted for several hours. <Being both Kurdish and Sunni, your crime is different from others,> an interrogator told him. Hassani was later taken to the prosecutor's office in Tehran' Evin prison where he was questioned again over his involvement in the <riot> and was asked whether he had cursed Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. He was released after he and his mother managed to gather 600 million rials (5,000 US dollars at the time) that the Evin court ordered him to pay. Dr. Ruzbeh Esfandiari, a former doctor with Tehran Emergency Services, tells IranWire that damage to Hassni's eye would have been less severe if he had followed the medical recommendations, including sleeping on his stomach for at least 24 hours after surgery.<In some cases, the level of vision may improve after surgery, but when medical care is not properly administered, and physical trauma is involved, surgery may not lead to the expected results,> he said. The pictures that Hassani recently posted on Instagram show him with the families of people who were killed during the 2019 protests and with demonstrators who were injured in the eyes. Hassani must travel to Tehran every six months for medical examinations. He has been unable to continue his studies in architecture and decided to embark on a career in elementary education. His mother worked tirelessly in a restaurant to support him and ensure he could continue his studies.>>
