In May 2008, Hamid Ghassemi-Shall was arrested while visiting his ill mother in Tehran. Now Hamid, a Canadian citizen, is facing the death penalty for a crime that he did not commit: that being spying.
Remember the American hikers, Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal and what they went through not so long ago.
Maybe you’re not one of those people who generally write letters to government officials. But imagine if this was you or someone you loved. Imagine Hamid’s wife, Antonella Mega, and what she must be going through.
