Alameh-Zadeh, in the book "A Hand in the Arts, an eye towards Politics" talks about his arrest on September 1973. He explains his two heavy charges, and how he was interrogated and tortured, tried in the military court, given a death sentence commuted to life imprisonment, and then how, finally after five years in prison, released in November 1978.

In an interview with Radio Farda, Alameh-Zadeh talks about his two heavy charges and says: "I was told of two heavy charges of assassinating Iranian Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi and taking the Queen of Iran, Farah Pahlavi, as hostage.
