Amnesty Int'l says Iran may have tortured Seyed-Emami to death

Kavous Seyed-Emami

Amnesty International has accused Iranian regime of torturing Iranian-Canadian academic Kavous Seyed-Emami to death, the Baghdad Post reported Wednesday. 


The Mullah's regime refused to deliver Seyed-Emami's body to his relatives. 


Earlier in the week, the dual national was said to have committed suicide at Evin Prison. 


Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi said an autopsy was conducted on Seyed-Emami’s body without delivering a medical report.


Observers said that not releasing a medical report proves Seyed-Emami was tortured to death. 


Seyed-Emami is the second Iranian-Canadian who has died in custody in Iran. In July 2003, photographer Zahra Kazemi also died under suspicious circumstances while being interrogated in Evin Prison. Her case remains unsolved despite calls for justice by lawyers and Canadian officials.

Truly terrible that this noble man was either murdered or driven to suicide.
