In another case, an Iranian political activist tried to flee to Norway going through Syria after a red notice was issued.
He was then deported to Iran, despite his status as a political refugee being recognised by the United Nations and was tortured before being jailed for 15 years.
He was left almost paranoid, his urine contained blood and lost all his teeth before observers lost track of him, according to investigative journalist Libby Lewis.
In a second case from Iran, Shahram Homayoun fled to the U.S. in 1992 after the mullahs took over, and set up a TV station to inform people of civil resistance in his native country.
He called for ‘flash mobs’ at the tomb of Cyrus the Great, a Persian ruler and in 2009 he called on people to ask their baker for bread every Thursday.
In December that year he was carged with inciting ‘terrorism against the Islamic regime such as writing slogans [on walls] and resisting the security forces’
A red notice was issued and he can’t leave the U.S.
