Saeed Malekpour: Prisoner of the day

"Repents" to avoid execution

Radio Zamaneh: Saeed Malekpour, an Iranian computer programmer who has been jailed and sentenced to death in Iran, has reportedly “expressed remorse and repented”, allowing his lawyer to apply for clemency in his case.

On Saturday, Mehr News Agency reported that Mahmoud Alizadeh Tabatabyi, Malekpour’s lawyer, confirmed that his client’s death sentence has been approved by the Supreme Court.

Malekpour, a 35-year-old engineering graduate of Iran’s Sanati Sharif University and a software developer, arrived in Iran in 2008 from Canada, where he was residing, and was arrested by Iranian authorities.

He was charged with “propaganda against the regime by designing pornographic sites, insulting sanctities, insulting the leader and the president, and corruption on earth” and he confessed to the charges in a television interview aired on Iranian state television.

Malekpour’s lawyer said: “My client has expressed remorse about his former actions and, having repented in prison, he is calling for a reduction in his sentence, but the judiciary has not made its decision yet.”

Following his televised confession, Malekpour wrote a letter to the head of Iran’s judiciary, claiming that all of his statements were made “under severe pressure, torture and false promises of release.”

I'm afraid not!

No, I really don't get what you're going on about. Keep him in a hole? Negotiate with hid wife for her to become a porn actress? Then show her film to him so he can masturbate?

What are you babbling on about? That's your way demonstrating your disapproval of porn?

Sorry, I thought I was talking to someone of sound mind. My mistake.

Not necessarily.....just keep him in the hole.....negotiate with his financially-strained wife....let her understand that she can be a porn star if she wants.....then show the film to Malekpour........he'll masturbate to death.....All this......if the charges are it?


FA, let me understand what you just expressed

by Reality-Bites on

So, you are stating that Malekpour should be put to death for running a porn site. In other words, in your view those who post pornography online should face the death penalty, is this correct?

It's clear Human Rights of Iranians will not be a priority

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

For the USA/UK/France and Germany/Israel.  Media Attention is very low on this issue in the west because it undermines the wests ability to prolong this un-iranian regimes life. //



درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


ننگ بر آنانیکه از این زندانیان شجاع برای هدف شخصی خود سؤ استفاده میکنند

Iranians of all walks of life taking a stand for their freedom and just rights.  They are to be commanded and supported by all freedom loving folks.


  Iranians need to stand united in their support for these brave souls, support their goals and aspiration for a  free independent and prospers Iran. 

 Foreign nations which thru their apartheid policy practice the same insanity and unjust detentions cannot be a good example for the future of Iran and need not to apply. 


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



Regime change for Saeed's sake

by Fred on

The human rights violating Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all, have proven to be reform-proof.

Regime change by Iranians for Iranians with logistical help from the sane world is the only way to end this nightmare.

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