Words from Hasan Ronaghi Maleki to President Rouhani

Hasan Ronaghi Maleki, brother of Hossein Ronaghi Maleki to President Rouhani:

****

Mr. Rouhani, was it not you who during the presidential elections and before your victory spoke of freedom for political prisoners? Then what happened Mr. Rouhani?

Many say these matters are out of the hands of Mr. Rouhani; he cannot make or implement any decisions.

If it was not in your authority why were you shouting out about it and discussing the matter with such overwhelming confidence?

Freedom has not come to political prisoners including my brother Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, who despite his illness in prison was not even granted medical furlough.

I ask the people who said, “thank you Rouhani” to explain what they are thankful for, so that maybe we may also say “thank you Rouhani.”

اقای روحانی مگر شما نبودید که در زمان انتخابات و قبل از برنده شدن در انتخابات دم از آزادی زندانیان سیاسی میزدید پس چه شد این همه ادعا

خیلی ها می گویند اینها از حوزه کاری جناب روحانی خارج است و نمی تواند تصمیم بگیرد و انجام دهد .

اگر در حوزه کاری و اختیارات شما نبود پس چرا آنگونه قاطع وبا اعتماد می گفتین و فریاد می زدید.

حال برای برادرم حسین و زندانیان سیاسی دیگر آزادی نصیب نشد که هیچ بلکه با وجود بیماری در زندان ماندند و حتی مرخصی هم برایشان داده نشد .

واز کسانی که می گفتند مچکریم روحانی می پرسم برای چه می گفتند به ما هم بگویند شاید ما نیز گفتیم مچکریم روحانی
