Ganji's Family Didn't Say Thank You!

A spokesman from Iran's justice ministry, Jalal Karimi Rad said that Iranian authorities are annoyed with Ganji's family, who "did not even thank us for paying the hospital bill" which amounted to 14,000 Euro for his treatment at the Milad hospital in Tehran.

Ganji's wife - Massoumeh Shafii - told Adnkronos International (AKI) that, for the last two weeks she was not allowed to see her husband. An employee at Tehran's Evin prison told Shafii that "nobody would take responsability for the prisoner's health condition."

Massomeh Shafii added that she had written to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan calling on him to intervene to secure her husband's release.

The apathetic and insensitive comments made by Jalal Karimi Rad, is analogous to expecting an executed-political-prisoner's bereaved family to show gratitude and offer to pay for the bullets used in the process.
Someone needs to remind this person that he is not using the money out of his own pocket. The tax-payers in Iran are footing the bill; which would not have been necessary, if such (in)justice ministry had not existed in the first place.
