      As the head of the Khuzestan Province Prisons Organization, he was responsible for the killing of political prisoners in Ahvaz's Fajr Prison, in the summer of 1988. According to the order of Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic Republic, several thousand political and ideological prisoners faced short trials and were sentenced to death in August - September 1988 and buried in mass graves, while they had already been tried for the same charges and were serving their sentences.  The majority of those executed were from leftist groups.
