      Description

      Mehdi Alizadeh Mohajer, in his capacity as the head of the Forensic Medicine Organization of Markazi Province, is responsible for preventing the revelation of the true cause of the death of Mehrshad Shahidi, one of the victims of the 2022-23 protests in Arak.

      Alizadeh Mohajer is accused of obstructing justice by preventing the identification of the perpetrators of Mehrshad Shahidi's murder through providing vague and inaccurate reports regarding the cause of his murder.

      Mehrshad Shahidi-Nejad participated in the protests in the city of Arak on October 26, 2022, during the commemoration ceremony of the fortieth day after the death of Mahsa Amini. He was attacked by security forces with batons and shockers, resulting in his death.

      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.
