In Iran, a cadre of lawyers takes the case of justice

Borzou Daragahi, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer, has written a story about the lawyers who take care of Human Rights cases in Iran. He has talked to the Lawyers in the Center for Human Rights Defenders, which was lunched by Shirin Ebadi, 2003 Noble Peace Prize laureate, and a few other prominent Layers a few years ago. Among them, Nasrin Sotoodeh is the youngest. Borzou has interviewed Dr. Sheifzadeh and Ms. Sotoodeh which are both my lawyers in Tehran. and since 2005 they have been following my case in the court. We have been in touch closely to complete the defense documents. However still the case is not finished and I'm not sure the authorities care about the evidences and facts. These lawyers accept all the cases for free and spend lots of time with people with politically motivated charges. I admire their efforts and commitment to the society and to the Human Rights values.
