Emergency Blog Alert: Abdolahi Freed

[Media Source*]

Brought to you by The Committee To Protect Bloggers

(Committee To Protect Bloggers) We're delighted to announce that Mohamad Reza Nasab Abdolahi has been released from Iranian prison.

According to Reporters Without Borders, "Abdolahi, who was arrested on 23 February 2005 and sentenced to six months in prison and fined a million rials (about 85 euros), was released on 27 August. His arrest was reportedly linked to his occasional contributions to foreign radio stations. He was also apparently facing charges in a separate case involving morals – a charge frequently levelled against political dissidents in Iran."

Although this is great news to hear, Abdolahi still faces additional charges which are probably being issued against this blogger in order to "keep him quiet." Another blogger, Mojtaba Lofti, was also released, although a couple other bloggers are still in prison or awaiting trial.

Mojtaba Saminejad is the last remaining blogger being held in an Iranian prison. He was sentenced to two years in February. Omid Sheikhan is facing a trial on similar "morals" charges in October.

This Emergency Blog Alert is being broadcasted in an effort to raise awareness of bloggers suffering persecution worldwide because of their political views. If anyone is interested in helping out with these broadcasts, click here.
