This report explores the ways in which the 2003 death of Iranian - Canadian photo journalist Zahra ( Ziba ) Kazemi illustrates chronic, systemic problems in Iran's law enforcement and justice systems. The report examines specific violations of Iranian and international law that occurred in the Kazemi case and identifies numerous structural impediments to accountability for human rights violations in Iran, concluding that significant reform of the judicial system is needed to counter ongoing impunity for violators.
