Who is telling the truth?

Story of Dr. Azam is getting exciting and complicated. In one hand Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hamid Reza Asefi, officially said that there was no record of Shahram Azam working as doctor in the hospital where he said he saw evidence of flogging and torture on Kazemi’s body. Also an Iranian prominent MP, belonged to a so-called opposition group, without mentioning Dr. Azam’s name, almost in the same words, said that the name of the individual (Dr. Azam) was not on the list of doctors who were working on that mysterious night. But in the other hand Dr. Azam, in an interview (in Persian) with BBC, announced he had all credible documents to prove that he was a doctor, an army, working at Baghiatallah hospital, and also he was in the hospital at that specific night and examined Kazemi’s tortured body.
Couple of days ago one of Stephan’s lawyers during an interview with CBC television said he and his colleagues had been in contact with Dr. Azam for months and they had done all the necessary researches about his testimony before inviting him to Canada. He declared that they made contact with many reliable sources in Iran in order to verify all Dr. Azam’s statements.

Davood, do you know if Zahra Kazemi's body was returned to Canada? I understand that Dr. Azam has made some very specific allegations as to the injuries that he saw on Ms. Kazemi's body. If the Canadian authorities could examine her remains, they could certainly confirm at least some of what he has documented.

Dear David,
The problem is that Mullahs would never return Kazemi's body back to Canada. They have been lying about this case since beginning. No independent investigaion has been taken place sofar. If Kazemi's son (Stephan)could take this case in an international court there would be a great opportunity to get more clue about what was really happened.
