Majlis receives impeachment motion against labor minister

The motion has been signed by 20 lawmakers.

Deputy Majlis speaker Mohammad Reza Bahonar said the motion would be studied by the presiding board on Wednesday.

The impeachment motion was circulated after the labor minister did not heed warnings by MPs not to appoint former Tehran prosecutor general Saeed Mortazavi as the head of the Social Security Organization.

The appointment drew criticism from some parliamentarians who hold Mortazavi partly responsible for the Kahrizak incident.

A parliamentary report issued on January 10, 2010 blamed Mortazavi for sending 147 inmates, charged with involvement in the political unrest that occurred after the presidential election of June 2009, to the substandard Kahrizak detention center on July 9, 2009.

According to the report, despite the fact that officials of Tehran’s Evin prison had announced that the facility had enough space for the detainees, Mortazavi insisted on sending the 147 detainees to the Kahrizak detention center. Three of the detainees died while in the prison.
