Hossein Ronaghi Maleki: Prisoner of the day

Blogger, human rights activist

Zamaneh: Iranian human rights activist Hossein Ronaghi Maleki has been transferred to the quarantine section of Tabriz Prison following his arrest at the volunteer aid camp for earthquake victims in Eastern Azerbaijan province.

Saham News reports that Ronaghi Maleki has been put in quarantine to await transfer to Evin Prison in Tehran.

According to this report, the activist, who already suffered from kidney complication that developed during his earlier imprisonment after the 2009 election protests, “is now suffering from kidney hemorrhaging brought on by the beating he suffered during his arrest.”

On August 23, 30 volunteers at an independent, volunteer-run relief camp in Eastern Azerbaijan were arrested for refusing to surrender their relief supplies to government aid efforts. Some of the detainees were released on bail a few days later but some have been held in custody.

Last week, Iran’s Prosecutor General confirmed the arrest of these individuals and the “sabotage” charges they face.

Hossein Ronaghi Maleki used to run a blog under the alias Babak Khorramdin and was arrested in the crackdown on protesters that followed the 2009 presidential election, which was marred by allegations of vote rigging.

Ronaghi Maleki is sentenced to 15 years in prison. After 32 months in jail and following a number of hunger strikes, the activist was recently released on heavy bail.

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 



درود بی پایان بر همه زندانیان سیاسی




یار دَربَندم،  دلم همراه توست

ملک ایران زنده از فریاد توست


 چرا ایرانیان از آخوندها متنفر شده اند؟



سپاس از شما که مرتب این عزیزان را بیاد ما می آورید 


Regime change for Hossein's sake

by Fred on

Regime change is the one and only way to end the 34 years of systematic violation of human rights by the Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all.

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