                          Anisa Jafari-Mehr

                          Anisa Al-Jaafari, a writer whose whereabouts and fate are a mystery, is stuck behind the bars of the Iranian prison, without any clarifications of why she was arrested. On the 23rd of November, she was arrested by the Iranian authority, who then stormed her house in Eslamabad, confiscated her laptop, mobile, and even books. It is worth mentioning that Anisa Al-Jaafari was a writer, art and literary critic in a Kurdish-language magazine based in Germany. Journalist and Jurists pointed out her arrest is an appalling violation of the freedom of press and expression.

                          Ruhollah Zam

                          The Iranian opposition journalist, Ruhollah Zam, was unaware that his political perspectives would cause him troubles and that he would pay his life as a price for expressing himself on his news channel, broadcast on Telegram.

                          From France to Iraq, the Iranian authority lured Zam, as Revolutionary Guard declared and emphasized in a speech that Zem is one of the key figures in the enemy’s media network and psychological war. Observers viewed this as controversial questioning the involvement of Iraqi officials in Zam’s arrest.

                          His charge and indictment were ready, promoting corruption, and his sentence to death awaited him to be executed on December 12th, 2020. Zam was executed and did the freedom of expression that the Iranian regime considers to be a way to spread corruption.
