Iran's Kiarostami case verdict issued

The verdict of the cause of the death of the late internationally-acclaimed Iranian film director Abbas Kiarostami has been issued, announced the deputy head of Iran Medical Council (IRIMC).

Mohsen Khalili said that based on the verdict, the doctor was sentenced to a written reprimand registered in his profile and published in medical media, IRNA wrote.

The council had earlier announced that hospital reports received from France confirms IRIMC's judgment about the cause of Kiarostami's death.

The main cause of the noted Iranian director's death had been reported as 'meningeal hemorrhage' (bleeding within brain membranes). Further scrutiny on Kiarostami's death were conducted upon a request by his son.

He had traveled to France for cancer treatment after undergoing surgery in Tehran. He died at the age of 76 on July 4, 2016, in Paris and was buried in Tehran.
