Dr.Shahram Aza has taken refugee status in Canada to expose his finding of torture on a Canadian Woman in Iran.
Zahra Kazemi, who was born in Iran but became a Canadian citizen died in custody after being arrested for taking photos of protesters outside an
Iranian prison. She died in Iran's custody on July 11, 2003.
Dr. Azam said Kazemi injuries included a damaged skull, a broken nose, broken fingers, missing fingernails and toenails, a smashed big toe, and
ruptured left eardrum.
OTTAWA (Reuters) - A female Canadian photographer who died in Tehran two years ago after being arrested had been badly tortured and quite possibly
raped, an Iranian refugee to Canada said on Thursday.
The account by Shahram Azam, who said he was an emergency room doctor in Tehran's Revolutionary Guard Hospital at the time, contradicts the official
Iranian assertion that 54-year-old Zahra Kazemi died after she fainted and hit her head.
The death of Iranian-born Kazemi exposed deep rifts between Iran's reformist government and hard-line judiciary and focused attention on what
activists say is the country's bad human rights record.

They originally said that she had fainted and hit her head. In reality she was beaten to death after being arrested for taking photos of protesters
outside a Tehran prison.
She died a brutal death for standing up against the Iran regime.
Canada can not let this slide, this offense can not go with out justice being served.
Canada has tried to pressure the Iranian regime, without much success, into reopening this case. They might have to join with other countries who have
their own problems with Iran.
