The niece of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described authorities led by her uncle as a “murderous and child-killing regime,” in an online video uploaded by her brother on Saturday after her apparent arrest on unclear charges.
Farideh Moradkhani comes from a branch of the family that has a record of opposition to Iran’s clerical leadership and has herself been jailed previously in the country.
Her brother Mahmoud Moradkhani wrote on Twitter that she was arrested on Wednesday after going to the office of the prosecutor following a summons.
