Azerbaijan, Baku, July 30 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Former Tehran prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi has been dismissed from his position as the head of Iran's social security organization, Fars reported.
Iranian administrative court issued a statement which dismissed Mortazavi from his post, without any possibility for reinstatement, Iranian parliamentary member Mohammad Deghan said.
A parliamentary report issued on January 10, 2010 blamed Mortazavi for sending 147 inmates, charged with involvement in the political unrest that occurred after the Iranian presidential election of June 2009, to the substandard Kahrizak detention center on July 9, 2009.
In 2011, Tehran's Military Court dismissed Mortazavi after a series of tragic incidents in the Kahrizak Prison. The court discussed cases over two other judges in connection to the incident. The court dismissed all three persons from their posts.
The Kahrizak prison is located in the city Karadaj near Tehran. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a decree on the closure of the detention on center July 28. Prisoners involved in protests against the presidential election were kept here.
Khamenei's decree was issued after the mysterious death of Vice-presidential candidate Iran Mohsun Rezai's son Mohsun Ruhulami and others in the same prison. Ex-prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi has been accused of the murder of these people.
The Tehran military court No.1 sentenced to death two policemen who were arrested in connection with the tragic incident in the Kahrizak prison.
They were accused of beating prisoners in the Kahrizak prison that caused the death of Amir Javadifar, Mohsun Ruhulami and Muhammad Kamrani.
