      Description

      1.      As the Director of Criminal Investigation Division of Mazandaran Police, Ali Gheisari is responsible for the murder of at least two protesters, Ghazaleh Chalabi and Erfan Rezaei, during the 2022 nationwide protests. Gheisari has cut the investigation into those responsible for her death, claiming that Chalabi was shot by a fellow protester.

      During the protests in Amol, on 21st of September 2022, security agents stationed on the steps of the Governor’s office shot protesters and killed Ghazaleh Chalabi and Erfan Rezaei.

      In footage filmed by Chalabi, an armed person is seen shooting at the protesters from the steps of the Governor’s office. In another scene, Ghazaleh Chalabi who is chanting slogans suddenly falls to the ground after being shot in the head. Erfan Rezaei was killed at the same incident.

       

      The 2022-23 protests began following the death of Mahsa (Jina) 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.
