Free Marzieh Hashemi - Journalist abducted by FBI
17 January 2019
Outspoken African-American Journalist Marzieh Hashemi, who is news anchor at Press TV, has been abducted by the FBI on 13th January 2019 whilst visiting her family in the United States. No reason has been given and she has not been charged with any crime. She has been shackled and moved to an undisclosed location in Washington DC.
Like her civil rights, her religious rights have also been trampled over, with her hijab being forcibly removed and being forced short-sleeved clothing that does not comply with her religious dress code. She is being denied halal or vegetarian meals, only being offered pork, effectively denying her food.
Inminds Human Rights Group chair Abbas Ali said "We strongly condemn the abduction of Marzieh Hashemi. She is being punished for her forthright reporting, in exposing the crimes of Empire against the oppressed, both internationally and in the Unites States. She is a political prisoner, we demand her immediate release."
