PEN Calls for the Permanent Release from Prison of Journalist Akbar Ganji
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Now that Ganji has been released from Evin Prison, we urge that his freedom from incarceration be made permanent and that he not be returned to prison next week. He has already served more than five years of his prison sentence, much of it in solitary confinement. His health, already weakened by the imprisonment, will only worsen and reverse any gains made during this week of freedom.
