They Should Be Tried


That U.S. citizens Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal are being tried in Tehran for illegally trespassing Iran is a logical decision of Iran’s judiciary. That they had been ‘hiking’ in Kurdish Iraq in July 2009, allegedly unintentionally crossing the border, is not very credible, although possible. It is not acceptable, though, that they had to spend in jail for more than a year until a respective decision was made.

Anyway, it is hoped that Iran’s judiciary makes sure that they will have a fair trial. It is in the regime’s interest to prove that arresting the U.S. hikers was not an illegal act of kidnapping but the necessary measure of protecting Iran’s sovereignty.

    You know, just because a document showed they were on the Iraqi side,..that isnt necessary the truth. Also, they are obviously there to provoke the Iranian regime, spies just like the french girl
