Why Does Zia Nabavi Have to Suffer?


Why Does Zia Nabavi Have to Suffer?
by Maryam Nayeb Yazdi
Today is the 855th day of Zia Nabavi's imprisonment. The Iranian authorities have not provided the high-achieving student activist with even one day of prison leave (furlough). Zia has endured extremely deplorable conditions in various Iranian prisons since his arrest in June 2009. The Iranian authorities have selected many illegal channels to justify depriving the renowned student activist of his basic prisoner rights and issuing a decade's worth of exiled imprisonment. Zia Nabavi is currently held in prison exile, far way from his family and friends. He has been abused and tortured, but no one hears his cries. He has no choice but to lean on his own will. We can help Zia Nabavi by getting his story out to the world.
