Return human rights lawyer Masoud Shafii's passport and let him do his job.

This petition had 169 supporters

Mr. Masoud Shafii is the courageous lawyer who fought tirelessly for FREEDOM for Josh Fattal, Shane Bauer and Sarah Shourd. Josh, Shane and Sarah, American citizens, were captured on July 31, 2009 and held hostage by the Iranian regime for 2 years and 2 months. Since their release on September 21, 2011, the Iranian regime has punished him for his role in their FREEDOM by confiscating his passport and preventing him from representing new human rights clients.

As a result, he is unable to visit the grave of his sister, who died while he was defending Josh, Shane and Sarah, nor his children in North America. He is unable to do his job at a time when when the Iranian regime continues to commit gross violations of human rights and challenges to Iran's economy are heightened by international sanctions.

The regime is detrimentally affecting his life, the lives of his family members, and the lives of his potential clients and their loved ones by preventing him from representing them.

Please sign and share this petition as far and wide as possible and urge the Iranian regime to treat Mr. Shafii with the dignity he deserves.
