Baku – APA. Authorities have fired and arrested the chief of an Iranian jail that was closed amid allegations of mistreatment of detainees held for protesting June’s disputed election, CNN reports quoting Iranian media. Some protesters were arrested for contesting the election of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
"One security official at the prison, who was responsible for reporting irregularities at the prison, as well as the prison warden have been sacked and are under arrest," Gen. Esmaeel Ahmadi Moghadam, commander of Iran’s security forces, told the semi-official Iran Student’s News Agency.
Iran’s Press TV said the move comes in the wake of the deaths of two inmates who had been arrested for protesting the results of June 12 presidential election. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, ordered the Kahrizak facility shut down amid reports it did not measure up to the required standards, Press TV reported.
