Baquer Namazi, Iran

Baquer Namazi is an 80 years old children’s rights campaigner. He has been sentenced to ten years in prison by the Islamic regime of Iran. He was arrested when he went to visit his son Siamak. Their “crime†is that they are dual nationals being held hostage by the Iranian regime. February 22 is one year that Baquer Namazi is in prison. Free Baquer and Siamak now so they can come home to their loved ones.
