      Hamid Zamani is complicit in the death of 16-year-old, Abolfazl Amir Etai, in his role as Governor of Rey. During the protests in City of Rey on 21st of September 2022, security forces shot tear gun pellets at Abolfazl Amir Etai’s head, from close distance. He was severely injured and died eight months after this incident from his injuries. Zamani is also accused of disguising the real cause of death and its perpetrators. Nationwide protests broke out in Iran in September 2022, after the death of Jina Mahsa Amini in custody of the morality police. Protests continued into 2023, in small pockets across the country. According to reports from human rights organisations, security forces were responsible for the deaths of 537 people, including 68 children.
