News Agency Editor: ‘We Would Publish The News Upside Down’

In February, Iran’s Intelligence Ministry announced the arrest of seven members of “counterrevolutionary satellite network organizations and Zionist media,” whom it said were affiliated with the opposition Green Movement.

The ministry said the detained, whom it accused of having been trained in “various soft subversion and other sabotage techniques abroad,” had links to RFE/RL’s Radio Farda, while adding that a number of them were officially employed by the U.S. intelligence services.

A year later one of them, Ahmad Jalali Farahani, a former social editor at the semi-official Mehr news agency, speaks to “Persian Letters” about his ordeal. Jalali Farahani, who fled Iran following his release from prison, is currently seeking asylum in a country neighboring Iran.
