Judge's dismissal of Baha'i citizen's murder proves that Iran's legal system is still corrupt

The delay in dealing with the case of Iranian Baha'i citizen Ataollah Rezvani shows yet again that the Iranian legal system is not based on delivering real justice to victims, and that widespread persecution of Baha'is continues in Iran. The judge's dismissal of Rezvani's death as a suicide instead of the murder that it was goes against all of the evidence presented in the case, and is a gross injustice to Rezvani himself, his family, and his friends. Despite all the talk of reform, it is clear that grave human rights abuses are accepted and rewarded in Iran; nothing will change until real, effective punishments are used against the Iranian government and its legal system.
