Mockery of Justice: Ignorant Judge Vs. a Clueless Defendant
The recent release of a short video featuring Revolutionary Court Judge Abolghasem Salavati offers a rare glimpse of Iran’s corrupt judiciary in practice.
Salavati is seen ruling on the case of Ruhollah Zam, the founder and operator of Amad News Telegram Channel, which became famous for publishing sensational news and exposés against the government of the Islamic Republic.
New Round of Pressure on Iranian Journalists
A number of journalists were summoned for questioning, and the homes of others were searched at the end of January and in early February. The homes of Maziar Khosravi and Yasman Khaleghian were searched on January 26. On February 3, agents went to the home of Hajizadeh Moloud, and on February 6, they raided the home of Ehsan Bodaghi. Other targets have been reluctant to provide their names.
