Ex-Tehran prosecutor arrested

April 23, 2018

TEHRAN – Police have reportedly arrested Tehran’s former prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi, who was earlier convicted to two years imprisonment for the post-2009 election deaths in prison.

According to IRNA, Mortazavi was arrested in northern Mazandaran Province on Sunday and was taken to the Evin detention center in Tehran.

In March 2018, Mortazavi's sentence was referred to the department for the enforcement of judgments, but he failed to show up, sparking rumors that he had fled abroad.
