"Dear all, as recently posted by Hamed, Hossein's brother, the judge rejected Hossein's appeal and confirmed the 19.5-year sentence. The lawyer will now file for the Supreme Court. But we all know this is not only a judiciary matter - politics play a greater role in Hossein's future. Thanks to keep on spreading the news about Hossein's situation - especially to put pressure on Canadian authorities which remain dead silent since Hossein's arrest in November 2008."
