Reza Moradi Case

Posted by rantingkraut on June 5, 2006

Reza Moradi, who got arrested at the Freedom of Expression rally in Trafalgar Square, may still be facing charges. Moradi’s ‘crime’ consisted in holding up a sign displaying some of the Danish Mohammed cartoons. There is a message from Moradi on Maryam Namazie’s blog:

Thanks for your emails and questions regarding my situation. To give you an update, Keith Porteous Wood, from the National Secular Society, has found me an excellent pro bono lawyer, Daniel Burbidge. We have already met once to go over the case; he is now following it up for me. The police have not yet sent the case to court because they say they are still gathering evidence. I am still waiting to receive their summons.

We want to make sure this case gets its day in court and that with your support – with the support of all those who seek justice when our civil liberties and freedoms are under attack – we will win and raise the banner of unconditional freedoms higher than ever before.

We fight both the political Islamic movement and the laws that support it and provide it with cover to make sure there can be no justification and excuse for such attacks on human values again.

I will keep you posted. I will be needing your support in defence of free expression and against political Islam’s encroachment on universal values.
