Saberi to be Freed

Roxana Saberi's lawyer, Saleh Nikbakhat, "confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that she could be freed later today" (RWBfirst jailed for purchasing a bottle of wine -- consumption of alcohol is forbidden or haram in Islam. However, charges were later brought against her accusing her of spying for the United States. Saberi's father is Iranian-American, and her mother is Japanese-American. However, Iran refused to release Saberi earlier due to her Iranian citizenship. According to Reporters Without Borders, "'The short space of time between the original trial and the appeal, the length of the appeal hearing and the fact that her lawyers were allowed to speak in her defence are all encouraging signs . . . but we must not jump to conclusions as the Iranian judicial system often produces surprises."
