My name is Farzan Athari and I am a 29-year-old Swedish-Iranian. I am writing this from Dubai Central Jail. After 8 months, they finally gave me my sentence; they gave me LIFE in Jail. I later learned that I almost got the death penalty, but because the decision was not unanimous I was given the more ‘lenient’ sentence.

من فرزان اطهری، جوان 29 ساله ی ایرانی– سوئدی هستم و این نامه را در حالی می نویسم که مدت 9 ماه است در زندان مرکزی دبی به سر می برم. بعد از 8 ماه حکم من صادر شد؛ حبس ابد. مدتی بعد از دریافت حکم دادگاه، اطلاع یافتم که من تا مرز اعدام هم رفته بودم، اما چون قضات پرونده در مورد حکم اعدام به اجماع و اتفاق نظر نرسیده اند، با یک درجه تخفیف حکم حبس ابد صادر کرده اند. نمی توانم برایتان توصیف کنم که چه احساسی داشتم زمانی که به وسیله ی تلفن به من اطلاع داده شد که باید باقی مانده ی زندگی ام را در زندان بگذرانم.
