Two imprisoned journalists detained without charge
HRANA News Agency – Two Iranian journalists, Favad Sadeghi and Ali Ghazali, are detained in Ward 240 of Evin Prison without charge. Sadeghi and Ghazali have been in prison for 28 and 47 days respectively.
According to a report by Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), both journalists work for Baztab, a website that publishes news and other related information in Iran. Sadeghi and Ghazali were arrested after Baztab published two reports about financial corruptions of Iranian government officials.
Sadeghi is married and has a two-year-old toddler and a 6-month-old infant. His two-year-old child who suffered violent convolutions before Sadeghi was arrested is reportedly in critical condition. For the last ten days, Sadeghi’s children have been denied the opportunity to visit their father.
