Sina Motallebi, Iranian journalist, writer and the blogger behind was summoned by the Iranian authorities and subsequently arrested on ambiguous charges on the eve of his 30th birthday. These charges include the content of his web log, as well as interviews with foreign press and his other writings.

Sina’s wife Farnaz posted the news of his arrest on his blog on April 19th, but the posting was later removed. He had already published the content of his summons the day before.

This is the latest on a series of attacks on freedom of speech by the government of Iran. Reporters without Borders recently called Iran, "the biggest jail for journalists in the Middle East". The group also named Iranian leader Ali Khamenei on its list of "Predators of Press Freedom". The list also included China’s Jiang Zemin, Syrian president Bashar el-Assad, Ariel Sharon of Israel and the recently deposed Saddam Hussein of Iraq. Khamenei was also chosen as an "Enemy of the Press" by Committee to Protect Journalists last year.
