(AGI) Teheran - The two German journalists arrested in Iran while interviewing Sakineh's son and attorney have been freed.
The announcement was made by the German Foreign Minister, who noted that the two reporters are, at the moment, in Tabriz together with a functionary of the German Consulate. He said that they should be brought to the German Embassy in Teheran by the end of the day. The student agency ISNA stated that their 20 month sentence in jail has been commuted to a fine of 36,000 euros each, to be paid in cash.

shallow comments

by fussygorilla on

as usual, so far the comments ignore the facts and continue one-sided propaganda.  these Germans had initially DENIED  that they were journalists, had entered Iran with Tourist visas, attempting to dish out some dirt about a local issue: a woman who had murdered her husband and sentenced to die for it.  They have served a few months of their sentence for lies and now have to pay the bail money to leave.  This only shows a fair and compassionate punishment for these liars.

And yesterday they apologised to Spain for helding their embassy employee during 25 bahman. So what happened to "Doctor" mammot's  "aggressive foreign policy"? I guess compromised in return for a safe heaven when the angry masses start knoking on mammot and Agha's doors!

Thank you German Jurnalists

Thanks to these two and all the other people who pulicized Sakineh's case world-wide and made it impossible for IRI terrorists to stone her
