Tehran Prosecutor, Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi announced today that investigation into the death of Ramin Pourandarjani, physician at Kahrizak Detention Centre where allegedly post-election detainees were tortured and killed, so far has revealed that he died from "drug poisoning."
Suspicions over 'heart attack' death of Iranian doctor who knew too
TIMES Online - Ramin Pourandarjani was a brilliant medical student with a promising future, until he was found dead in a dormitory at Tehran police headquarters last week. He is now the new cause célèbre of the Iranian Opposition, with MPs and Western organisations demanding an investigation into the death of a man who knew too much.
The official cause of death for the physician is heart attack but there is evidence that regime officials drove him to suicide or murdered him because he witnessed the brutality used against opposition detainees after the disputed election in June.
Dr Pourandarjani, 26, attended a school for gifted children, graduated with distinction from the University of Tabriz and was doing his two-year national service at the Kahrizak detention centre in Tehran during the June protests.
Ramin Pourandarjani's funeral
Reformist websites also maintain that
Pourandarjani had informed his family and friends that his life was in danger.
Mowjcamp even reports that Pourandarjani had informed the Parliamentary Probe
Committee about the alleged tortures and deaths in Kahrizak. The Committee
denies receiving such a report from Pourandarjani.
Iranian Police claim the violations committed by officials at Kahrizak were done arbitrarily and the perpetrators have been fired and remanded to custody for prosecution.
