Zahra Kazemi ruling expected

There are reports that Iran’s supreme court will soon rule in the case of  Zahra Kazemi, an Iranian-Canadian photographer , who died in a Tehran prison in June 2003. An Agence France-Presse report from Tehran cites the Kazemi family lawyer as a source, quoting from a news agency in Iran.  The lawyer,  Mohammad Seifzadeh,, is part of a legal team led by Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi.

AFP noted that Iran’s supreme court heard an appeal in the case last July: “Her family’s lawyers had demanded a fresh probe into what they alleged was her “intentional murder” after she died in custody following her arrest for photographing a demonstration outside Tehran’s notorious Evin prison in June 2003.”
