Iran: happy Nowrouz

In a message written for the Iranian New Year the Kurdish political prisoner Reza Sharifi Bukani reminds the public that this year also hundreds of political prisoners will spend Norooz in one of Irans prisons.
Bukani was arrested in 2010 in an internet cafĂ© in Tehran. He was sentenced to death on charges of “enmity against God” and “corruption on Earth” but his sentence was later reduced to 30 years in jail, and in a final review of the case, he was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison.

The former Tehran prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi has been announced to head of the Social Security Fund, despite impending charges against him regarding the torture and death of inmates at Kahrizak Prison.
He was appointed by president Ahmadinejad in a ceremony attended by the Minister of Cooperatives, Employment and Social Security and other members of his administration.
His appointment is severely criticised by many people.
The Mothers of Laleh Park have also denounced Mortazavi’s appointment.
