A group of Iranian Members of Parliament called for the dismissal and prosecution of Saeed Mortazavi, former Prosecutor of Tehran and all other perpetrators of the "Kahrizak catastrophe."

A letter signed by 57 MPs and addressed to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Sadegh Larijani, Head of Iran's Judiciary was published today on Alef website which belongs to Iranian MP, Ahmad Tavakoli. It urges the executive and judicial branches of the government to confront "the perpetrators of the Kahrizak catastrophe."

Kahrizak was a detention centre run by the Police Department and used to keep some of the post-election detainees. Reports which were finally confirmed by a parliamentary probe committee confirm that detainees were severely tortured at the centre and four detainees were even killed as a result of the torture.
