Iran murders second Kahrizak doctor who had evidence of systematic prison rape and sexual abuse

According to reports, Dr. Abdolreza Soudbakhsh, an assistant professor at Tehran University who was shot and killed last week was linked to the Kahrizak Detention Center. He treated prisoners who were suffering from infections in the urinary tract and damaged reproductive systems (as a result of rape and sexual abuse in Kahrizak) and had orders from security forces to officially announce that all prisoners who came to him for treatment had meningitis.

This university professor was suspiciously shot and killed one day before going abroad. Therefore, Soudbakhsh is the second doctor who was killed in the past year over this issue.

Ramin Pourandarjani, another doctor who was serving in the State Security Forces in the Kahrizak Detention Center suspiciously passed away on November 16, 2009. Officials announced his death as suicide…

Soudbakhsh recently felt that his life was in danger because of increased pressure by security forces. He had a ticket to leave Iran on September 22 and was shot dead outside of his clinic in Keshavarz Blvd in Tehran less than a day before he was to go abroad.
