Popular Documentary Producer Summoned to Culture and Media Court
Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA)- Historian and documentary producer Hossein Dehbashi was summoned Saturday, November 3, 2018, to appear in Culture and Media Court just two days later to respond to accusations from the Ministry of Intelligence.
Publishing an image of the summons, Dehbashi wrote, “without no explanation, for the day after tomorrow… and not even the addressee [Dehbashi] knows what it’s about. It would be kind of you to pray for me as friends and brothers”.
Dehbashi rose to modest fame after producing a promotional documentary for 2013 presidential candidate Hassan Rouhani, as well as the documentary “The Royal Court’s Narrative.” In 2015, he directed and launched the Iran Verbal History Project through the National Library and Documentation Centre [thousands of YouTube viewers have screened clips of Dehbashi’s work, which features interviews with key political figures from the past four decades].
