Mehdi Hashemi: Prisoner of the day

Solitary confinement

Zamaneh: The head of the Iranian Prison System confirmed today that Mehdi Hashemi, the son of senior cleric Ayatollah Rafsanjani, is being held in solitary confinement.

The Arya News Agency reports that Gholamhossein Esmaili, the prisons chief, said on Friday October 19: “Mehdi and Faezeh Hashemi as well as Ali Akbar Javanfekr are treated like all other prisoners.

Faezeh Hashemi is the daughter of Ayatollah Rafsanjani, the Chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council, and Ali Akbar Javanfekr is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s senior press aide.

Esmaili said that Mehdi Hashemi is being held in solitary by order of the judge while interrogations and investigations in his case are completed.

Earlier, Mehdi Hashemi’s lawyer had reported that his client has been held in solitary ever since he was arrested and is barred from having any visitors.

Mehdi Hashemi has been charged with fomenting the elections protests of 2009, which challenged the legitimacy of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s victory in the presidential race.

He returned to Iran this month after a three year absence following the 2009 election and reported to the judiciary to face the charges against him.

His sister, Faezeh Hashemi, is serving a six-month sentence for criticizing Iranian authorities in a public interview.

Ayatollah Rafsanjani has said that he trusts the system to treat his children fairly and he will not get involved in the judiciary’s process so long as they are dealt a fair hand.

Ali Akbar Javanfekr, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s top press aide, has been sentenced to one year in jail for a report on women in Islam that conservative factions of the government found offensive.

Ahmadinejad has condemned his incarceration and denied the charge that Javanfekr has insulted the leader.

He is a prisoner and he has

by Babak K. on

He is a prisoner and he has the rights that should be protected.  Sometimes in the city of Chicago different Mafia groups went after each other, it is exactly what is happening here.  Neverthless, his rights most be protected.  We are for human rights and that should be our guidence.  He should be treated with respect and dignity, that is the only thing can make us different from Khomeini and company.  This man is not worse than Abdul-Kareem Soroush or Zibakalam.  In tomorrow free Iran, I want to see that even Falahians' rights are protected.  Otherwise, we are not different from them.  We do not have to be students of Ghandi, but human rights and sharaf and vojdan should be our guidence.  I realize how hard this can be for us the Aryo Iranians.

The Hellish Princes

May GOD break the backs of the corrupt so called princes like Mehdi, Reza, and alike for betraying our people. Amen. 


رژیم تروریستی


رژیم تروریستی ولایت فقیه نابود باد.مهدی هاشمی فرزند "آخوند رفسنجانی دزد و
مجرم در ‌قتل، تحت تعقیب پلیس بین‌الملل" که بدلیل منازعات درون حکومتی و
جنگ قدرت در میان جناح‌های مختلف فاشیست‌های مذهبی حاکم و نه بدلیل
دادخواهی ملت اسیر‌شده ایران، در بند "خودی‌ها" گرفتار شده، مظهر گویای
لزوم سرنگونی رژیم ددمنش اشغالگر فاشیستی و بازگرداندن حکومت بدست توانای
مردم ایران و خدمتگزار راستین آنان "نهضت مقاومت ملی‌ و رئیس‌جمهور منتخب،
خانم مریم رجوی" است. رژیم پوسیده فاشیستی نه به خاطر رفاه حال امثال این
"آخوند‌زاده"، بلکه بدلیل ایجاد امکان مجازات همه اشرار و اوباش حکومتی
باید سرنگون گردد.مرگ بر اصل ولایت فقیه.زنده باد "نهضت مقاومت ملی‌"، تنها
آلترناتیو معتبر در رأس اپوزیسیون.



Regime change, even for Prince Mehdi's sake

by Fred on

The only way to end 34 years of systematic gross violation of human rights by the Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all, is regime change by Iranians for Iranians with logistical help from the sane world.

Backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval quarantine is a must.
