Mortazavi, was directly responsible for Zahra Kazimiâ€™s death
Once again the mullahsâ€™ 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 Kazimiâ€™s death. An Iranian-Canadian-photojournalist, who was raped, tortured and killed by Mortazavi himself in the Evin prison in 2003. Kazemiâ€™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.
