      Description

      Jafar Mi’adfar placed ambulances at the disposal of security forces in at least eight cities, i.e., Tehran, Karaj, Mashhad, Babol, Rasht, Ardabil, Khoy and Zahedan. In doing so, he assisted in the suppression of the 2022-2023 protests by facilitating the transport of security forces and helping them infiltrate demonstrations, arbitrarily arrest the protesters and transfer them by ambulance.

       

      The 2022-23 protests began following the death of Mahsa (Gina) Amini on September 13, 2022, in the detention of the morality police of the Islamic Republic. These protests quickly spread across the country and are remembered as the largest revolutionary uprising against the government since the establishment of the Islamic Republic.

      The Iranian government responded to these protests with deadly violence. According to human rights organizations, the security forces of the Islamic Republic have killed at least 551 people, with a minimum of 68 of them being children.
