Mohammad Soleimani Nia: Iranian translator imprisoned, without charges


A sad reminder that, while many in the translation industry enjoy freedom of employment and expression, there are translators amongst us who are not as privileged.

Mohammad Soleimani Nia Imprisoned

Iranian translator Mohammad Soleimani Nia is the farsi translator of the best selling book Funny in Farsi by Iranian-American author Firoozeh Dumas. He also developed the social networking website U24.

Soleimani Nia has been imprisoned in Tehran's Evin prison since January 2012 without charge, reportedly being harassed since last November. The authorities should either charge or release Mr Mohammad Soleimani Nia.
