A mother whose son was stabbed to death in a brutal gang attack is to sell family heirlooms to raise thousands of pounds and help give his killers the chance to lead better lives.
In an extraordinary act of forgiveness, Fatemah Golmakani, 56, said she hopes to mentor her son Milad’s four attackers when they leave prison and will “hug them and kiss them and hold their hands, and tell them that someone loves them”.
Through a charity she plans to start with the money, she wants to take them “on trips to Europe, to eat good food, wear nice clothes, show them what life is really about”.
More than a year after her son’s murder, his room remains untouched. Milad, 22, had been playing football last April with friends on an estate basketball court in West Hampstead when his killers, all wearing black jackets with hoods pulled over their faces, arrived by minicab.
