Updated February 2001
Akbar Ganji is one Iran's leading investigative journalists. He was
sentenced to ten years in prison and five years internal exile for "undermining
Iran's security" by participating in a Berlin conference on reforms
Ganji's most provocative articles appeared following the chain murder
of dissident authors and political activists in the fall of 1998.
He argued that there had been many other political assassinations during
the presidency of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the current head of the Expediency
Council, all of which must be investigated.
His latest collection of articles, "Aalijenaab-e sorkhpoosh"
(L'Eminence Rouge, "His red-robed highness" (26th edition, Tarhno
Publishters, Tehran , 2000) -- a title he chose for Rafsanjani, based on
the 17th century French
cardinal who sought royal absolutism), has been a bestseller. Up to
