AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL REPORTS ON SUPPRESSION OF JOURNALISTS

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.
