Iranian Judiciary Rejects Allegations Over Death Of Young Woman

RFL/RE – Iranian justice authorities have rejected a report that a 20-year-old woman had been questioned by the intelligence services a day before she died at home. The circumstances surrounding the death of Sara Tabrizi were under investigation, the Mizan news agency — which is run by the country’s judiciary — reported on March 30. It said that her father had found her lifeless body at home. Tabrizi’s death is reported to have occurred roughly a week ago in Shahriar, west of Tehran. Political activists have accused the judicial authorities of applying pressure on Tabrizi over recent months.
