In his words:

“I was so shocked when they said Mohbad had a will. Me as his father, I’m 50 years old and I do not have something like that, I’ve never thought of writing my will. A 26-year-old boy wrote a will? That’s capital no so they had to collaborate with the lawyer to put his hands into things that are not right. A 26 year old thinking of having his own will, Mohbad is the kind of person that can never think of using his hand to thumbprint his will, he would rather sign it but because he’s dead, they had to call a lawyer to do their own mathematics, it’s God that wants to expose them.”
