Arrest Warrant for the Mother of Iran's Cyber Hero

An arrest warrant has been issued for the mother of Hossein Ronaghi-Maleki, the true hero of Iran's struggle against internet censorship, who is serving a 15 year jail sentence.

Hossein's mother, Zoleikha Moussavi has been charged with disseminating information about his son by holding interviews with the media outside Iran. Once again today's rulers of Iran, the enemies of knowledge and information have displayed their fear of information and their disregard for a mother's feelings for her beloved son. Hossein Ronaghi-Maleki,  like other political prisoners kept in section 350 in Evin prison, has no visitation right or telephone contact.
