'Naghdi, charged with the rape and murder of 12 women.'

Tehran, Iran, Nov. 03

On the orders of the Supreme Leader’s office, however, the charges were dropped. The rehabilitation of General Naghdi by President Ahmadinejad has caused grave concern among human rights observers and political activists in the Iranian capital.

Iran’s President Ahmadinejad (has) handpicked an old-time colleague from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) to head the Office to Combat Smuggling. (General Naghdi) has a notorious reputation as a key figure in the shadowy security organisations of the Revolutionary Guards and the paramilitary police.

Political dissidents have accused the Iraqi-born Naghdi of being an interrogator and torturer in Iran’s prisons in the 1980s. In the 1990s, he worked under IRGC General Zolqadr, when a secret cell composed of Revolutionary Guards was assigned to murder several prominent dissidents in Iran.
