She wrote, “Give us Mohbad for a befitting burial. We are tired of your carelessness and slowness. If no one speaks, I will.
I have invested too much of my emotions, time, and love to see this Justice go through. As QM says, give the police more time.
Honestly, we have given you all the more time than necessary. This is not the case to be swept under. We want Justice.”
