Dr. Reza Moridi, former Minister of Research, Innovation and Science of Ontario-Canada and former Minister of Training and Colleges and Universities Ontario-Canada, emailed to the Global Korean Post about the petition calling on Iran to immediately release Ms. Nasrin Sotoudeh.
Nasrin Sotoudeh, a human rights lawyer in Iran who has represented many Iranian human rights activists including the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, and a number of journalists, political figures and Hijab protesters since 2009, has been recently sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes.
Dr. Reza Moridi is supporting for her immediate and unconditional release.
As of April 19, 1,553 people have signed on the petition.
Nasrin Sotoudeh was accused and sentenced for “spreading propaganda and conspiring to harm the state security”, “espionage”, “dissemination of propaganda”, “disparaging the Supreme Leader of Iran”, “encouraging corruption and debauchery and providing the means”. These are all baseless terms designed by the Iranian government to stop Nasrin and other human rights activist from advocating for freedom, democracy and rule of law in Iran.
