If this looks like an ordinary diplomatic photograph -- it is not. In a rare encounter, the Hon. Noel Kinsella, Speaker of the Senate of Canada, summoned Kambiz Sheikh-Hassani, the Iranian Charge d'Affaires, to his chambers.

Saeed Malekpour was sentenced to death on October 2010 on false confessions he gave two years ago when subjected to physical and psychological torture. The release of Sarah, Shane, and Josh from Evin prison shows that we, as a community, can put a stop to yet another indictment on human rights.
