They took in several large boxes inside the house, claiming that they have been authorized by the Tehran prosecutor to film a movie from the house named: “The descendant”.  Ramin Seyedemami, the deceased’s son mentioned that the security forces have occupied the house and our lawyer, Mr. Kikhosravi was not allowed to enter the house even though he was present at the scene.
