Free Hoder

In Support of Hossein Derakhshan

Following the arrest and subsequent release of Iranian-American reporter Roxana Saberi, we are surprised that Hoder’s case has received little media attention. In fact, mentions of Hossein Derakhshan during Saberi’s trial were limited to brief updates such as the following: “Ahmadinejad also urged the chief Tehran prosecutor to allow jailed Canadian-Iranian blogger Hossein Derakhshan the right to fully defend himself.”

We again call on Iran for transparency in the case of Hossein Derakhshan and plead with the Canadian government to defend one of their citizens.
