Former judge at the first chamber of the Evin Court, and now judge at branch 71 of the Tehran Provincial Criminal Court. He has conducted several trials of demonstrators, inter alia that of Abdol-Reza Ghanbari, a teacher arrested in January 2010 and sentenced to death for his political activities. The Evin court of first instance had recently been established within the walls of Evin prison, a fact welcomed by JafariDolatabadi in March 2010. In this prison some accused persons are confined, mistreated and forced to make false statements.

On 10 October 2011, the European Union published the names of 29 officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran including Aziz HajMohammadi whom the E.U. asserts are “responsible for serious human rights violations” and is thus subjecting to travel bans and asset freezes.[1]
