Agents Raid House of Jailed Iranian Dissident
Iranian judicial agents today raided the Tehran home of jailed Iranian dissident Akhbar Ganji. Ganji, a dissident journalist, has been on a hunger strike for weeks in protest at his jailing in 2001 for articles criticizing members of the ruling regime.
He is currently in detention in a Tehran hospital.
Journalist and reformist Issa Saharkhiz, a friend of the family, said today that Ganji's daughter asked him for help because she said agents from the Tehran prosecution branch were searching their home.
Ganji, 46, is entering the 59th day of his hunger strike, and his wife Massoumeh Shafiie and legal team, including Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi, have voiced fears at his deteriorating health. Ganji is serving a six year prison term.
