    Awareness-raising event for Saeed Malekpour

    This Friday February 3, Alex Neve, Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada, will be part of a panel for an event that is being held to raise awareness for Saeed Malekpour. Saeed is a Canadian Permanent Resident                             who has been detained in Iran’s Evin Prison since 2008. It is alleged that a web based program he developed was used to post pornographic images to the internet. Amnesty International is calling for his immediate release.

    Alex will be joined by a number of human rights activists, Members of Parliament, as well as former prisoners that Amnesty International campaigned for: Homa Hoodfar, Mohamed Fahmy, Hamid Ghassemi-Shall, and Mostafa Azizi.

    The event takes place from 6:30-8:30pm at the Earth Sciences Building at the University of Toronto, 5 Bancroft Avenue. Registration is not required for the event.
