My husband is 43 years old, and spent 14 years or 1/3 of his age in prison, this is after the stablishment of the Islamic Republic, on and off from 1981 to present .most of the time he was kept in special prisons and solitary confinement , His crime was writing , thinking and expressing his thought which is close to Dr. Ali Shariati thoughts . Q- How is his situation today and as well your family ? We are not in good situation, since the last time he was arrested we live in ambiguity, we do not know until when and in what condition should he stay in prison. up to now two times; once 130 million Tuman( close to 200000 Canadian Dollar ) and the other time 50 MillionTuman ( close to 70000 dollar) bail for his release was paid, but they didn't release him.Today he is in section 2 -A of the prison which is completely disconnected with the outside world and even the prison management saying that; they are unaware of his whereabout.
