Today Nazanin Afshin-Jam spoke with Mohammad Mostafaei, the attorney that she had asked to represent Reza Alinejad. Within the next few days Mr. Mostafaei anticipates a response to his appeal letter to Ayatollah Shahrudi, the head of judiciary of Islamic regime in Iran. He anticipates the process to take some time , and at the very least one months.
NOTE: We were asked by a few concerned readers about the rumor that was started by another website and their news bulletins about Reza Alinejad having been scheduled for execution on April 1st, 2007. We promised to re-verify this and here is the result of our investigations: REZA ALINEJAD IS NOT BEING EXECUTED ON APRIL 1st.
We will continue our practice verifying the news before reporting them as well as always providing the source of the news. We also ask the readers to verify and ask for source of the any rumors they read before assuming them as factual and passing them to others as accurate information. Such false rumors at times could have serious consequences on the prisoners, their family and the campaign supporters.
