Things are beginning to look grim in Iran, the regime is going to continue its reign of terror. Saeed Mortazavi known as atorturer and murderer is in charge of interrogations of reformists. This is really dreadful news. It is important for all right thinking people to stand by the Iranian people in their struggle against the Theocratic regime and call for and end to the terror; fresh elections and the restoration of human rights in Iran.

The Iranian regime has appointed one of its most feared prosecutors to interrogate reformists arrested during demonstrations, prompting fears of a brutal crackdown against dissent.

Relatives of several detained protesters have confirmed that the interrogation of prisoners is now being headed by Saaed Mortazavi, a figure known in Iran as “the butcher of the press”. He gained notoriety for his role in the death of a Canadian-Iranian photographer who was tortured, beaten and raped during her detention in 2003.
