One year ago, on 20 June 2009, the student Neda Agha Soltan was shot dead during a protest in Tehran. Since then, no action has been taken by Iranian authorities to solve this crime, says Amnesty International. Despite extensive evidence like videos and numerous eyewitness reports, the regime has so far inhibited an independent investigation of the case. Instead, Tehran continues to blame broadcasting agencies like BBC and CNN for Neda’s death. According to Amnesty International, this case is paradigmatic for the human rights abuses in Iran.
