Jailed lawyer resumes hunger strike

rferl: Jailed Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has resumed her hunger strike in Tehran's Evin prison, her husband has told RFE/RL's Radio Farda. Sotoudeh's husband, Reza Khandan, told Radio Farda on November 4 that his wife had begun a second dry hunger strike to protest the conditions in which she is being held and the lack of progress in investigating her case. Khandan said his wife has become extremely weak due to the conditions and her hunger strike. He said that on October 23 Sotoudeh ended her first hunger strike -- which lasted 24 days -- after being promised better conditions and that "appropriate" attention would be given to her case. But he said she resumed the strike when those pledges were not met >>>

Well! Dear Statira,

Your comment is a bit too harsh. We don’t know whether she is an adulterer and a murderer. That’s what evil IR claims. I agree with you that the western media is worse than IR, when it comes to propaganda but I believe that both cases are of utmost important to any compassionate human beings.


it's not fair

Western media makes a big deal for the execution of an adulterer and murderer like Sakineh Ashtiani, but when it comes to a good human being, activist and lawyer like Nasrin, they are silent. CNN is even worse than the Islamic Rapist Seda va Seema.

Only Islamic laws can create a government as brutal as this. Notice that those people like Sargord who usually supporting IRI, are very silent when it comes to this kind of savageries by their puppet masters.
