Sentences Expected for Iranian AIDS Docs

Physicians for Human Rights expects Drs. Kamiar and Arash Alaei to be sentenced any day now on bogus treason charges in Iran. The brothers, who have been treating AIDS in Iran for many years, apparently became targets of the Iranian government after daring to attend a few international conferences.

PHR is requesting immediate help in their latest action alert on the situation. They think the more people protest, even electronically, the more likely the brothers will get a lighter sentence, or even have the charges dropped. Read more at iranfreethedocs.org.

I called the Iranian Mission to the UN today on behalf of the Drs. Alaei. Their phones were ringing off the hook with Iran, Free the Docs callers. Thanks for helping to spread the word.
