No Final Decision On Mahsa Amini’s Cause Of Death: Attorney General

Monday, 12/26/2022

Iran’s Attorney General says no final decision has been made regarding a complaint by the family of Mahsa Amini whose violent death in police custody led to protests.

Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said Sunday, “The Legal Medicine Organization announced its comprehensive and expert opinion in this case, but Amini's family filed a complaint against the medical council of the country.”

He added that the complaint has been referred to the medical board for expertise, and the experts of the medical board have not yet announced their final opinion.

The 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, also known as Jina Amini, died in a hospital in Tehran September 16, suffering from severe head trauma after being arrested by Iran’s ‘morality police’ apparently for improper hijab.

Police claimed that she had a heart attack at a police station, collapsed, and fell into a coma before being transferred to a hospital. However, eyewitnesses, including women who were detained with Amini, reported that she was severely beaten and that she died because of police brutality, which was denied by authorities.

Mahsa's father, has repeatedly emphasized that “he saw himself that there were traces of blood on his daughter's body, in the back of her neck and ears, and many parts of her body, including her legs, were bruised.”

Family lawyers December 9 issued a statement warning that government insistence on their narrative will damage the transparency of the proceedings.
