Saturday, 10/08/2022

Amjad Amini, the father of Mahsa, the young woman whose death sparked the uprising in Iran, has rejected Iranian coroner's report that her daughter did not die du blows to her head.

In an interview with Iran International, he denied the forensic report about the cause of his daughter's death and said that he has repeatedly requested to publish the video of his daughter's arrest, but the authorities have not done it yet. 

He added that "I saw with my own eyes that blood had come from Mahsa's ears and back of her neck."

He had earlier said that he held the police responsible for her death.

About three weeks after Mahsa death, the Iranian Legal Medicine Organization announced on Friday that her death was "not caused by blow to the head and limbs" but by multiple organ failure caused by cerebral hypoxia. It did not say whether she had suffered any injuries. The report did say she fell while in custody due to "underlying diseases".

Amini’sdeath while in the custody of Iran's morality police has ignited three weeks of nationwide protests. Young women and men have simply rebelled against enforcement of restrictive Islamic rules on their lifestyles and demand an end to religious government.

Iran International obtained Amini’s brain CT scan from hospital sources in September that shows bone fracture in the skull, hemorrhage and brain edema, Iran International has learned.
