This image was published recently on a Kurdish site. I did a quick Google search and found it again on an Iranian blog. The victim is allegedly Kurdish, and the official visitor is allegedly Mohammad Khatami, the former Iranian president.

I couldn't find any sources for the story to verify but it doesn't look fake to me.

The real story of the photo

Reliable sources identified the photo as real, but it was taken at the opening of a torture museum in Tehran. The body of the man hanging upside down is not real, but a wax figure.
