died at Kahrizak.
The three victims had been detained in the post-election unrest in 2009.
The Kahrizak detention center, located south of
Tehran, was closed on the order of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei because it was substandard.
Former Tehran Prosecutor, Saeed
Mortazavi has been found responsible for the torture and death of
election protesters at the infamous detention centre Kahrizak,
