Last attempt to save Ganji!

1 August 2005

Masoumeh Shafie, Ganji's wife is going on a strike in front of United Nations office in Tehran on Wednesday at 9:30 AM. She has asked people to join her and show their support and demand Ganji’s release. The latest news according to his wife Massoumeh Shafiei is that during a 5-minute meeting on Friday, Akbar is on the verge of life and death and he fainted and she agreed that he should be syringe-fed to avoid his loss of life. Mrs. Ganji has also said that when she called the hospital on Friday to arrange her next visit, she was told that she could not see him again while she continued giving interviews to the foreign media. She has vowed to continue with the interviews.
