Following the detention of Dr. Ramin Jahanbegloo, a Canadian citizen, the Iranian regime has now moved to charge him officially with very silly accusations.
His charges are espionage for foreign parties and having relations with foreigners, including having illegal links with monarchists and those groups which are trying to overthrow the mullahs.
He was believed to be taken to hospital and being tortured in the notorious Evin prison.
This completely reminds me of 2003 arrest of Canadian journalist, Ms. Kazemi who was brutally tortured, raped and killed in the prison.
We must make sure that such tragedy does not happen again. I hope Canadian government under the leadership of PM Harper ensure Ramin's freedom and well-being.
I have utmost faith in Harper's government and I am sure they are working hard to solve this.
