Latest Arrest Spurs Rights Group to Demand Iran Journalists' Release
Thursday, 8 November 2018 18:05 WIB | GLOBAL |

Authorities in Iran's capital have arrested a journalist who wrote about government corruption, in the latest of a series of Iranian journalist detentions that have drawn international concern.

The first word of journalist Masoud Kazemi's arrest came from his fianceé, Shima Tadrisi, in a Monday tweet. She said neighbors told her that several people entered the couple™s Tehran home that morning and took Kazemi away.

œWe do not know which entity arrested him or the reason for the arrest, Tadrisi said, adding that those who took her fiancé also confiscated laptop computers, hard disks and flash drives from the home.

Kazemi is a former reporter for Iran™s reformist Shargh daily newspaper. An Iranian journalist who identified himself as a friend and former colleague of Kazemi, Sobhan Hassanvand, also posted a tweet saying Kazemi had been arrested Monday.

Hassanvand, who is based in Tehran, attached to his tweet a screenshot of Kazemi's Twitter profile, @masoudkazemi81, which has been suspended. The screenshot shows what appears to be one of Kazemi™s last tweets before being arrested. In that post, beneath a pinned tweet at the top of his profile, Kazemi urged his followers to œtake a look at this thread to become familiar with a small part of systematic corruption, and the role of fathers and their children in these corruption cases.

There was no immediate comment on Kazemi™s arrest in Iranian state media.
