AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL REPORTS ON SUPPRESSION OF JOURNALISTS

 

By Iran News Update Staff 

Iran is faced rising tide of press repression. The Amnesty International has released a briefing on that issue, which urges Iranian officials to immediately release those it has imprisoned simply for telling the truth or expressing opinions via the press.

The briefing calls attention to the highly visible cases of Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian and domestic, reformist newspaper journalist Saba Azarpeik, both of whom have been held without charge and interrogated in complete isolation inside Iranian prisons. But the document also mentions other, somewhat less familiar cases, including that of Hossein Nourami Nejad, who is facing six years imprisonment for his journalism and membership in the Participation Front political party.
