(EBA) Ahmad's Flight Towards Turkey

[Media Source*]

Emergency Blog Alert via the Committee to Protect Bloggers

(From S'Can-Iranic Blog) Seraji, in an interview with Tabriz News Agency's Human Rights Bureau (here), confirmed that he had escaped Iran to Turkey illegally, as he did not possess any valid passport. He has already approached the United Nations High Commissioner's office in the city of Van, in eastern Turkey. [...]

More importantly, Seraji added that during his arrest, in the summer of 2005, he was kept in the same part of the prison with inmates who were accused of murder, drug-trafficking, and other crimes. Later on, he was moved to another detention centre and was beaten up and tortured. His torturers told him that they could easily cut his veins so that it would appear that he had committed suicide!

Editor's note: If anyone has any contacts inside of Turkey that would be willing to help Ahmad out, please email .

Here is a brief bio about Ahmad:

According to adnkronosinternational, "A young Iranian blogger, Ahmad Seyyed Saraj, who has been imprisoned since 29 June in a jail in Tabriz, the capital of Iranian Azerbaijan, has received 30 lashes of the whip as part of his sentence. Seyyed Saraj has been charged with offending the authorities and revived a sentence of 30 lashes, while for the accusation of attacking the security of the state, he is still awaiting judgement."

Editor's note: Also if there are any faith bloggers out there, please keep Ahmad in your prayers.
