Mortazavi, was directly responsible for Zahra Kazimi’s death
Once again the mullahs’ regime deliberately insults the international community.  This time by sending some notorious anti-human rights characters among its delegation to the United Nations new Human Rights Council in Geneva.

One character, well known for his involvement in torture and killing of many Iranians is Saeed Mortazavi, the Prosecutor General of Tehran.

Mortazavi, was directly responsible for Zahra Kazimi’s death. An Iranian-Canadian-photojournalist, who was raped, tortured and killed by Mortazavi himself in the Evin prison in 2003.  Kazemi’s death received international attention as it created a serious rift in the relationship between Iran and Canada at the time.

"His presence at the Human Rights Council is really shocking. It is an insult to the victims of repression in Iran," Lynn Tehini, of the journalist's rights group Reporters Without Borders, told AFP.

Iran Azeris crackdown continue

Iran Azeris uprisingStop Fundamentalism - Two weeks after the uprisings in the four Azeri speaking provinces in northwestern Iran, a violent crackdown and torture of those arrested, especially the students, continue.

A recent report indicated that an 80-year-old man by the name of Eivaz Sayyadi, who was wounded during one of the demonstrations by the security forces, died in hospital.  The killing of an 80-year-old man sets a new precedence unseen in many countries controlled by dictators.

What is noteworthy is that the Intelligence Ministry has told the family of the victim not to announce the death of the old man and limit the burial ceremony to close family and friends only.

Due to the extent of the crackdown and the complete censorship of the news about the uprising, the number of those killed or injured during the demonstrations is still unknown.
