Another failure of justice in Iran

It is clear that the Iranian legal system is not changing, despite the election of a new government. The case of Sattar Beheshti must be taken to court, and all evidence must be fully examined; failure to do this will show that any hope for reform in Iran will be lost. Beheshti's killers, members of FATA, and the security forces who continue to threaten his family should also be imprisoned.
The wrongful death of Sattar Beheshti and the continuing plight of his family are more painful reminders that the international community needs to keep a watchful eye on Iran. Until the Iranian legal system is changed to protect innocent victims, a genuinely free and democratic Iran cannot exist. Pressure must be maintained on the Iranian government to ensure that victims of Iran's cruel legal system can finally receive justice.
What is your reaction to this story?
