Iranian human rights lawyer arrested

Saturday, July 30, 2005 Posted: 2159 GMT (0559 HKT)

TEHRAN, Iran (Reuters) -- Iran's conservative judiciary has arrested a leading human rights lawyer who was acting in two cases that have sparked international interest, 2003 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi said on Saturday.

Ebadi, herself a human rights lawyer, said she had no idea why her colleague Abdolfattah Soltani was arrested.

"He was arrested by people who introduced themselves as working for the Revolutionary Prosecutor," she told Reuters.

"I have nothing to say other than it is highly regrettable," she added.

Soltani was acting on behalf of hunger-striking dissident journalist Akbar Ganji, imprisoned after linking several officials to the murders of dissident intellectuals.

A letter, supposedly from Ganji, this week broke one of Iran's most deeply rooted taboos by calling on Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down.

Enraged conservatives wanted to know how such a letter reached the outside world.

Soltani is also a member of the legal team trying to unearth the truth behind the death of Zahra Kazemi, a Canadian-Iranian photojournalist who died in detention in Tehran's feared Evin prison in 2003.

One other prove that there can´t be any god. No shadow of a god would allow god damned typical clerics.
If these mullahs weren´t so lethal their appearance would only be good for jokes about such concentrated ignorance and dumb-intelligence put-on. But the way it is ...

The western media and politics had an EASY chance to help Iranians to get rid of the dictature not too long ago, but they were absolutely NOT interested, because clearly a serious / authentical move towards democracy is being considered less favourable than a bloody towel-head regime!

Rare guys like Mr. Ganshi who have ethical authority and exceptional courage to boot with never get rewarded in this piss-poor sociology that is being hold up by average folks like you and me.

The only plausible religious plot that I have ever heard of was how a Jesus would have been rewarded. Betrayed, killed and that silently observed by gras chewing human cows. Very plausible.
