The families of three opposition protesters who were tortured to death in prison last year demanded the former Tehran prosecutor be brought to trial and punished, Iranian media reports said Wednesday.

The three prisoners were among hundreds arrested during the mass street protests that erupted after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's disputed re-election in June 2009. They died the following month in Tehran's Kahrizak prison.
