New Names: Mohsen Moradi, Hassan Kazemini, Abbas Disnad

On his list Saeed Valadbaygi is giving some new names of victims, for the moment I cannot find other sources:
Mohsen Moradi (unknown location and date of death)
Hassan Kazemini (19 years old Tehran)
On "" there are other entries:
Abbas Disnad (very scarce information, except that he is mentioned between the martyrs in a commemoration invitation and his grave should be located in the same lot as Neda Agha Soltan's)

UPDATE: there were rumors about a 12 years old boy, killed during the commemoration of Neda and other martyrs 40 days after their death, anyway it seems that it is an older case and it is not possible to verify that he is actually one of the martyrs.
Please post me any sources if you find anything. Thank you.


  1. Alireza's last name is Tavasoli according to

  2. Hi,

    Iranrevolution here. I had to remove Alireza Tavassoli from the list. It seems that some disinformation has been spread by someone (or some organisation) to discredit our work. If you look at this picture
    and look at the dates, it is clear that this young man was killed almost a month before the supposed incident at Behesht Zahra.
    We have been duped!

  3. Wow, if it is disinformation on the merits of the photo as irefutable evidence then why is Green Brief 49/50 claiming a parlimentary investigation? This case needs a serious look. Can the disinformation evidence be disinformation as well?

  4. Well. it is necessary to check twice the information, because the regime backers are eager to show that the opposition is trying to pump up the numbers of dead and include everybody in the list of victims (as anyway did they during the 79 revolution, sometimes they claimed as victims people who died naturally or in an accident).. I am sure the regime itself knows fairly exactly how many people is it killing, but of course until the last breathe it will lie to everybody and blame anybody except itself...

  5. A link on Alireza Tavassoli from Onlymehdi on Twitter:

    Furthers my suspicions, is this part of a psychological campaign. If you compare the published photos from the death announcement you will see that there are actualy two versions of the announcement, first one that was included with the source of news, which was a tilted and partial image of the announcement shows photo of the child and some text, note the border is green decrations and a black background border, the new announcement published secondarily shows a white border decorations and a black background. Further look at the texts shows there are positively two versions of the anouncemnt because the positions of the red text denoting last name "Tavasoly" and the black texts above that denoting "Marhoome Maghfoor" line up differently on each version of announcement. On the Full image of the announcement "Marhoome Maghfoor" extends beyond the last name "Tavassoli". Of cource all this could be because the family actually did in fact print two different versions of the death announcement. But this can only be confirmed by making direct contact with the family or relatives of the young boy. Alas, a free press would be very helpful in this unclear situation and could expose if the news was factual or fabricated.

  6. Iranrevolution here. It is now CONFIRMED that Abbas Disnad is amongst the martyrs.

    Regarding the pictures of Tavassoli, observe that one is from his 3rd/7th ceremony and one for his 40th.
