In the past years i was in touch via email with Mansour Koushan working on the issue of Freedom of Expression in Iran and the " Freedom of  Expression House".
A few years ago when my young son Daniel died in a tragic accident ,Mansour Koushan wrote me a very warm message and sadly i have to write this painful message on his death.
