Speak out. Sign the petition. Free Maziar Bahari.

12 September 2009

Newsweek contributor Maziar Bahari, a 42-year-old awaiting the birth of his first child, has just spent his 81st night in solitary confinement in Iran.

Ahead of Iranian President Ahmadinejad‘s visit to the United States, Newsweek editor Jon Meacham makes a plea for Bahari’s freedom in The New York Times:

“If Iran wants to be taken seriously on the world stage, it needs to adhere to international standards. Journalists need to be free to report within the legal framework of the country. Foreign governments need to be granted consular access to their citizens. Prisoners need to be granted access to their lawyers, and either charged or released quickly.”
