NY Times blog holds forum on jailed journalists in Iran

The New York Times Room For Debate blog asked four people who have been jailed in Iran or who have worked with journalists who have been detained there to comment on their experiences. Read the remembrances of Iranian journalist Roozbeh Mirebrahimi, mortgage banker Ali Shakeri, president of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Jeffrey Gedmin, and Joel Simon, the executive director of The Committee to Protect Journalists.

  1. Dear My Global Journalist Community and Readers,

    As similar professional I urge you to make pressure and defend to arrest and jail such journalist wherever in the world.Though its accused as pressed declaring spying but a journalist would do whatever on behalf of Press Freedom.Again I’d urge my global journalist community as like CPJ, ICJF,EJC,NPF, etc to reconsider Roxana’s case in favor as similar professionals.
