Sattar Beheshti’s mother: “Exhume my son’s body and perform autopsy under UN supervision”

Friday, 12 July 2013

Sattar Beheshti’s (blogger who died while in custody) mother reacted to the coroner’s report that classified her son’s death as “death due to psychological pressure and not due to blows inflicted by the interrogators,” and asked for her son’s body to be exhumed. Sattar Beheshti’s mother asked the court and high-ranking Judiciary officials to exhume her son’s  body and for an independent autopsy to be performed under the supervision of trusted doctors and UN doctors. Months after the death in custody of Sattar Beheshti, the Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Ahmad Shojaei, claimed that the expert forensic examination provided two possible causes of death, death due to psychological pressure and trauma to the body due to blows received. After further examining these possibilities, the medical examiners announced the blows received by Sattar Beheshti were not fatal and could have not been the cause of his death.
