WE CAN’T BE MURDERERS. THAT WOULD BE UN-ISLAMIC!

The Iranian Government has rejected the findings of a judicial inquiry into the death in custody of journalist Zahra Kazemi, a Canadian national.
It emerged on Monday that the judge investigating the case had charged two officials from the intelligence ministry with “complicity in semi-intentional murder”.

But a government spokesman on Tuesday cast doubt on the legitimacy of the inquiry, describing its findings as having nothing to do with reality.

Well, that’s settled, then.
