Roxana Saberi, an Iranian-American journalist who was arrested in Iran in January of last year on falsified charges of espionage, will be giving a human rights lecture at Royce Hall on April 26th, 2010. Ms. Saberi was sentenced to eight years in prison in Iran but later released on appeal in May of 2009. As the keynote speaker of this event, Ms. Saberi will share her experiences regarding her imprisonment and shed light on international human rights abuses, as well as religious and political persecution. Having experienced the biased legal system and horrific confinement conditions that Iran’s political prisoners face, Ms. Saberi will be able to explain Iran’s current culture of intolerance and social suppression. After the 90 minute program she will hold a book signing.
