HUMAN RIGHTS: Lawyers May Take Kazemi’s Case to International Court, Ebadi Says
July 20, 2004 - Victim family’s lawyers may ask the International Court of Justice to probe into the judiciary’s handling of the Canadian-Iranian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi’s death in custody case, according to Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, who headed the family’s legal team. The family members and the lawyers walked out of courtroom, and refused to sign court papers in protest against the judge’s decision to put an abrupt end to the proceedings. “We have many venues in which to continue defending our clients, and we shall pursuit all venues, within the framework of the law,” she added. The judiciary officials prevented foreign diplomats and journalists from attending the hearing.
