The West's indifference to Iran's historic crimes lets my brother's killers get away with murder.
On a cold day in March 1988, my colleague came to me and said "Masoumeh, Masoumeh, you have a letter".
Receiving a letter is a routine for most people, but not for me. I was a former political prisoner in Iran and had been sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment in the city of Rasht in northern Iran. I was able to escape the prison miraculously and cross Iran's borders in a completely non-standard fashion. In the midst of a severe crackdown on dissent in Iran, it was very risky to send me a letter.
