Well-known journalist, author and dissenter Akbar Ganji spent six years in prison for exposing rights abuses committed by Iran's fundamentalist regime. The charges stemmed from a series of investigative articles exposing the complicity of then president Rafsanjani and other leading members of the conservative clergy in the murders of political dissidents and intellectuals in 1998. While in prison, Mr. Ganji continued to write, producing a series of influential political manifestos and open letters calling for Iran's secularization and the establishment of democracy through mass civil disobedience. Organized by the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism.
