Targeting a journalist

The Iranian regime is now targeting Iason Athanasiadis (aka Jason Fowden) of The Washington Times. According to Hossein Mohseni Ejeii, Iran's intelligence minister:

"Some people with British passports were involved in recent riots," he said. "One of the detainees collected information needed by the enemies under the guise of a reporter."

Such an unfair focus on one person, without regard to their rights or due process, is deeply worrying and authentically totalitarian.
