Internal security forces confiscated the passport of Parastou Forouhar when she returned to Tehran’s airport. Foruhar returned to Iran after having attended a memorial service for her murdered parents, Daryoosh and Parvaneh Forouhar (heads of the Nation of Iran Party), who were killed in a series of political assassinations. Parastou Forouhar’s parents, Daryoosh and Parvaneh Forouhar, were assassinated in their homes in Tehran in 1998, and their deaths became a prologue to a series of assassinations, referred to as the serial murders, targeting a number of Iranian intellectuals and dissenters. Daryoosh Forouhar was the leader of the Nation of Iran Party and a prominent political activist. At the time, the Islamic Republic Intelligence Ministry attributed the murders to “arbitrary forces” within the ministry and denied systematic involvement in it.
