RoholaminiAccording to Parleman News, the coroner’s office of Tehran officially announced on Monday that Mohsen Roholamini did not die because of “sickness.” Roholamini is the son of conservative pro-Mohsen Rezaei figure Abdolhossein Roholamini.  He was arrested in the post-election protests and was killed in Kahrizak prison.  Official reports had said that he died of meningitis.
