Freed journalist: Iranian regime’s ‘information fears’

Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari was held in a Tehran jail for 118 days in 2009. His arrest came as he worked for western media outlets, including BBC Panorama.

You used information like a gun against our master. You are a terrorist, albeit a peaceful terrorist, Mr. Bahari.” >>>
