Amir Mirza

This story has been sent to me from a private source.
This young man is an other victim of torture and horrible treatment of people during and after the post-election riots. On one of the last days of June he was badly wounded by Basijis and forcibly arrested near one of the main squares in Tehran, and then sent to prison, accused of several crimes including rioting, spying and plotting to overthrow the regime during the massive street demonstrations and acting as an agent against national security. Supposedly he was identified from a newspaper photograph.

After being tortured and beaten for three days, he was finally released on a high bail paid by his family.

Unfortunately he died some days later (due to complications of internal lung bleeding and meningitis). Even though he was denied the medical treatment he was detained again and tied up on the floor naked till he died while "checking his documents" by security forces at the hospital. His body was kept there but finally delivered to his home when his family paid a huge amount of money and under strict conditions and agreements.
