    Newsweek: Reporter Maziar Bahari was held in Iran for 118 days before he finally was allowed to leave the country. Months later, an Iranian court sentenced him in absentia to 13 years & six months' imprisonment.

    Here's his story. I left out most of his comments in favor of highlighting the restrictions Iranians have to live with every day. Still read the article. I can't imagine how people could have applauded their president here.

    Wolf, not to pick on you but 50 years for hacking emails would fit right in there. Maybe you should re-think that. I'm not trying to hijack my own thread but I think it's an appropriate observation

    Maziar Bahari: My Sentence in an Iranian Court - Newsweek.com

    The sentence just handed down against me in absentia by Tehran's courts tells you more about the regime than about my 'crimes.'

    ............................
    Five years imprisonment for unlawful assembly and conspiring against the security of the state.

    Four years for collecting and keeping secret and classified documents.

    One year for propagandizing against the system.

    Two years for insulting the Supreme Leader.

    One year and 74 lashes for disrupting public order.

    Six months for insulting the president.
