Dear Jane Duncan,
I might need the assistance of The Freedom of Expression Institute...
I am applying for an Iranian visa having been invited to speak by the revolutionary guard at Tehran University on the reasons why Ahmadinejad's nuclear policy should be reversed. I am also hoping to lecture various Ayatollahs in Ishfahan and Qom.
Like you, I do not believe all the nonsense about political dissidents, or anyone else, being thrown into jail and tortured in Iran.
If for any reason I am refused a visa to Iran, will The FXI take up my case, as you have just done for Prof Adam Habib re the US, with deputy Foreign Minister Aziz Pahad ?
