Dr. Abdolkarim Lahiji the lawyer and human rights defender who is currently residing in Paris in an interview with Radio Farda Said:
This is not the first time they kill someone in the Islamic Republic and then naming it as suicide.then Mr. Lahiji spoke about a series of misterious suicide which has a history in the Islamic Republic.He said that; unfortunately the judiciary power in Iran and other law making assemblies are not independant from political power and therefore the families of the victime lose hope in asking for a real investigation.He said: I believe the Islamic Republic must annouce about the death ,suicide or the murder of this lady.
Mr. Mohsen Armin a member of the commission number 90 which deals in public complaint or other issues and was a member of the previous parliament and also a reformist and is the one who disclosed the truth abouth the death of Zahra Kazemi , recently said :
The general manager of the newspaper who is the member of the parliament have said that this lady must be executed . I aske him if someone insulted the leader of the Islamic Republic must be executed?
