An Attorney Passed Away

Colonel A. Rahimi who had defended several of opposition figures during monarchy passed away. He defended men such as Mehdi Bazargan, the first prime minister of Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Taleghani; the most prominent leader of revolutionary days second only to Ayatollah Khomeini and many others. His actions as a defense attorney in military court were rewarded by his forced retirement from Imperial Army and a 3 months imprisonment.

He returned to active duty after revolution temporarily. His was a life worthy of studying and learning.

Many of those whom he defended adherently already are gone. Ayatollah Telaghani passed away before the first anniversary of revolution, exhausted by cheer amount of work and broken from tortures in Shah’s prison. His funeral was attended by all parties. Mehdi Bazargan resigned after only 9 months in office and spent rest of his life as an opposition figure under another political regime: Islamic Republic.
