My daughter was born on June 10, 1982. She was with me in prison for four years. In February of 1986 they released me from prison under the title of long-term leave. For about 15 years I had to report to the Judiciary Office of Mashhad every week. I was expelled from governmental work.In 2011, I left the country and resided in Turkey for two years.
