Ghorbanali Dorri-Najafabadi (Persian: قربانعلی دری نجف‌آبادی‎; born 1950) is an Iranian politician and cleric, previously the Minister of Intelligence of Islamic Republic of Iran. He is the current head of Supreme Administrative Court of IRI.


Dorri-Najafabadi was the minister of intelligence in the cabinet of then president Mohammad Khatami.[1] During his term of ministership, some journalists and reformist politicians were murdered by security agents, for which the Iranian government later charged his deputy, Saeed Emami, with orchestrating, claiming he had organized them independently. Dorri-Najafabadi resigned and was succeeded by Ali Younessi. The events were later named the "Chained Murders" by the reformist cabinet of President Mohammad Khatami.

After Mohammad Ismaeil Shooshtari, in 2005, he was the attorney-general of the Islamic Republic of Iran.[2][3] He was succeeded by Jamal Karimi-Rad in the post.

In 2008, he said that toys such as the Barbie doll are "destructive culturally and a social danger."[4]
