Notations On Our World: On the plight of Jason Rezaian & Other Thoughts

It has been a challenging few days yet again around our World.    We were quite intrigued by this from France24:




For everyone's benefit, Iran's Human Rights Chief is the brother of the Chief Justice of Iran and the the Parliamentary Speaker.   The three brothers are probably the most powerful trio in Iran Today.    His comments is especially poignant as reports also surfaced that Jason Rezaian's detention was extended yet again for 60 Days.    His acknowledgement of it being a fiasco seems to potentially bring in a sense of realism that somehow a resolution on this unjustified detention is at hand.

Beyond his comments on the Jason Rezaian case, his comments on the detention of the leaders of the Green Movement Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karoubi may be ending soon.   Although some hopeful signs have been floated before, the fact that he's noted this is quite a development.    As Rosewater continues to play in theaters that continues to remind all of the utter brutality of 2009, it will be quite a development if this occurs.
