He was appointed as the Head of the Death Commission in Tehran upon Khomeini’s order. The order, which was issued on 28 July 1988 according to Iran’s former deputy supreme leader Hossein-Ali Montazeri, states:

“Those who are in prisons throughout the country and remain steadfast in their support for the Monafeqin [Mojahedin], are waging war on God and are condemned to execution.”
