    (Wikipedia) - Parviz Sabeti

    Parviz Sabeti (born March 25, 1936) is an Iranian lawyer, former SAVAK deputy under the regime of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi.

    Born in Sangesar, Semnan province, in north-central Iran, to a Bahá''í family, probably of Jewish origin, Sabeti received a law degree from the University of Tehran and joined the SAVAK, Iran''s intelligence agency in Shah''s regime, in 1957, and quickly rose to become the acting director of the SAVAK’s so-called third division – its political directorate - and later its director.

    During his tenure SAVAK developed an infamous reputation for crushing dissent and systematically using torture. He has been called one of the most powerful men in the last two decades of Pahlavi regime.

    Parviz Sabeti and his family fled Iran after the Islamic revolution in 1979 and found sanctuary first in Israel and eventually, settled in Florida.

    Pardis Sabeti, a Harvard biology professor is his daughter.
