Another Plea for Ganji
Akbar Ganji, the Iranian jailed writer and journalist who has been in solitary confinement for many months now faces another predicament: no one can find a solution to this entangled case. One more time, a group of political activists have sent yet-another letter to the head of Iran’s Judiciary to impartially review his case. Political observers believe that there is no strong will among Iranian officials to intervene in Ganji’s case and resolve the issue. In her latest interviews, Ganji’s wife has warned about the dangerous game that lower level judiciary officials are playing with her husband, which will bring about a high price for the country.
The following are excerpts of the letter to the head of the Judiciary: READ MORE
Mr. Hashemi Shahroudi
Head of Judiciary Brach of Iran’s Government
Mr Ganji’s wife has complained about the mistreatments carried out by agents of Tehran prosecutor’s office, as well as recurring beatings and hand-cuffings of political prisoner Akbar Ganji.
On Tuesday you expressed disbelief over such claims in Hamshahri daily newspaper. We believe such comments are not free form judicial prejudgment. Based on our past experiences, we are sceptical that this case will be considered fairly and legally. It is to the best interest of the judiciary that a political prisoner’s case be reviewed and the case dismissed.
In order to take away all scepticism, we are demanding that you assign an impartial and legal source to immediately and publicly review the charges brought against Mr. Ganji. His previous claims and statements have proved right and therefore allow this occasion be the first when the violators of citizen’s rights are put on trial.
We are hopeful that your immediate order would be able to at least reinstitute a part of Mr. Ganji’s violated rights so that his battered family is not forced to refer the issue to international sources for justice.
