According to reports, Monfared’s partner has revealed that he was murdered by his half-brother and two others. “Alireza’s killing as a result of his sexual orientation being stated on his military service [exemption] card has once again provided proof for our warning several years ago about the risks caused by the military service exemption process for gay Iranian men and underlines the need for legislation to prevent these safety risks,” activist group 6rang said in a statement.

The murderers phoned the mother of Alireza Fazeli Monfared and told her where to find the beheaded body of her son. She has reportedly been hospitalised with shock.

The Iran International report stated further, “6Rang also wrote that it had warned earlier that the laws allow the law enforcement, judiciary, employers and educational authorities “to identify gay men with only once glance at the military service exemption card,” thereby depriving those “diagnosed” with such “depravities” from employment in government organizations and the private sector.”

His partner said that they were planning to move to Turkey to seek asylum in Europe. The three accused have reportedly been arrested. According to the report, the Persian website of the BBC had reported on May 7th that Monfared was in imminent danger from his family. LGBT are persecuted in Islamic countries, often by law, due to religious sanction against same sex relationships.
