Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran’s Joint Armed Forces, in charge of cultural affairs (aka State Defence Publicity HQ).
He actively collaborated in repression as deputy chief of staff. He warned in a Kayhan interview that many protesters inside and outside Iran had been identified and would be dealt with at the right time. He has openly called for the suppression of foreign mass media outlets and the Iranian opposition. In 2010, he asked the government to pass tougher laws against Iranians who cooperate with foreign media sources.

on 10 October 2011, the European Union published the names of 17 officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran including Massoud Jazayeri  whom the E.U. asserts are “responsible for serious human rights violations” and is thus subjecting to travel bans and asset freezes. [1]
