صحبتي کوتاه با سجاد در مورد مادرش سکينه محمدي آشتياني

س: : چند سالته؟
ج: ۲۲ سال دارم.

س: چند سالت بود که مادرت به سنگسار محکوم شد؟
ج: ۱۸ ساله بودم که اين خبر راشنيدم. اول مادر من در شهرستان اسکو دستگير شد و در همانجا محاکمه شد .

س: خوب اول چه حکمي دادند؟
ج: حکم اول اين بود که ۹۹ ضربه شلاق ميزنند .

س: جلسه دادگاه علني بود؟
ج: نه

س: شلاق را در ملا عام زدند٬ بقيه هم تماشا ميکردند؟
ج : نه . در خود دادگاه و در حضور دادستان شلاق زدند.

س: يعني در همان محل جلسه دادگاه ٬ تعدادي با شلاق وارد شدند و .. ؟
ج: در يک اطاقي در دادستاني يک مامور آمد و با شلاق شروع کرد به زدن مادر من…

س: خواهرت هم آنجا بود؟
ج: نه فقط من بودم خواهرم آنزمان خيلي کوچک بود .

س: الان چه احساسي داري؟
ج: احساس کمبود مادرم را دارم. آرزوي اينکه روزي مادرمان به خانه بيايد وما باهم زندگي کنيم. فريده خيلي ناراحت است و دلتنگي مادرمان را ميکند. اميدوارم هر چه زودتر مادرم از اين اوضاع خلاص شود و از زندان آزاد شود.

س: شما پيش مادربزرگتان و يا فاميل هستيد؟
ج: نه . ما در خانه خودمان هستيم.

س. فريده چکار ميکند؟
ج : درس ميحواند. کلاس سوم راهنمايي است. و من کار ميکنم و خرج خودمان را در ميارم.

س: شما از مادرتان دلخور نيستيد٬ ناراحتي ازا او نداري؟
ج: نه . مادر ما بي تقصيره. اين براي همه اثبات شده . مادر من اول در دادگاه اسکو به شلاق محکوم شد و دو ماه بعد از اينکه شلاق هم به او زدند٬ پرونده را به دادگاه بالاتر فرستادند. در دادگاه شعبه ششم تبريز بررسي شد و مادر ما به سنگسار محکوم شد . اين حکم براي تهران فرستاده شد و آنجا هم حکم سنگسار مادر ما از سوي دادگاه عالي تر تائيد شد.

س: وقتي به ديدن مادرت ميروي ٬ مادرت چه ميگويد و از تو چه ميخواهد؟
جواب: مادرم فقط گريه ميکنه و ميگه منو از اينجا ببر بيرون …
