Tehran’s notorious former prosecutor suspended

۱ شهریور ۱۳۸۹

Jaras website reports that former Tehran prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi and two judges have been suspended by the Iranian judiciary in connection with the Kahrizak detention centre crimes.

The attorney of Amir Javadifar, one of the victims of the Kahrizak crimes, informed Jaras of this latest development in the lawsuit against the perpetrators of violations committed against detainees at Kahrizak last summer. Saleh Nikbakht reported that “following the suspension of the judges, all plaintiffs will be allowed to file their complaints against these individuals.”

Mehr state news agency had reported earlier that an order had been issued to suspend three of Iran’s judiciary officials. The names of the other two individuals have not been announced yet.

Last July, the judicial branch of the armed forces sentenced two unidentified Kahrizak officials to death for “intentionally beating prisoners to death.” Nine other individuals were given court sentences ranging from imprisonment to fines and suspension from work.

A number of Iranian MPs have called for the prosecution of Saeed Mortazavi, who was the prosecutor of Tehran at the time, and according to officials was responsible for transferring the prisoners to Kahrizak.

Mortazavi was removed from his position in the judiciary when Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani took over the head of judiciary position last year; however, the staunch Ahmadinejad supporter was immediately appointed head of Task Force to Fight Smuggling by the president’s office.

Mortazavi’s suspension by the judiciary comes after numerous political figures, both conservative and reformist, pushed for his prosecution in the Kahrizak case.
