Iranian jailed over Weblog
On April 19, Hossein Derakhshan, a young Iranian living in Toronto, got an alarming e-mail from a friend of his in Tehran. The friend, Sina Montallebi, wrote that he had been summoned to appear before the religious police.Gee!! I'm a criminal too!! Maybe I should go and get an anticipatory bail!!
The next day, Mr. Montallebi became the first person in history to be jailed for the crime of keeping a Weblog.
I feel like singing (with due apologies to Anastacia)...
I'd do my time
Whether it's wrong or right
You can sentence me
Sentence me to life
