Saeed Malekpour is a Second Class Citizen, who was seized from the streets of Tehran by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard in 2008. He was kidnapped, imprisoned in solitary confinement, tortured, and humiliated, just because he wrote an Open Source Computer Program for images to upload at website, that was later used without his knowledge by an Iranian pornography website.
In October 2010 an Iranian court sentenced Saeed to death, following the publication of Malekpour’s letter and rising international pressure. The death sentence was put aside, and a new trial ordered, and in 2014, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, changed Malekpour’s death sentence to life in prison.
Saeed Malekpour has been behind bars for over eight years, and he is still in Iranian jail, thousands of miles away from his adopted country of Canada.
Tell Justin Trudeau, that he can free Saeed Malekpour by ensuring a fair and independent trial, and to release him until that trial takes place.
