The most well-known political exile in the world right now has to be Mohammad Mostafaei, the Iranian lawyer who spoke out against Tehran’s plans to stone an allegedly adulterous woman to death.
But as he fought for Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s life, he found himself forced to flee his beloved Iran and President Ahmadinejad’s regime in an effort to save himself and his young family.
Now exiled in Norway, he speaks to video journalist Yalda Hakim about saving scores of people from execution in Iran, his journey of survival and his plans to continue fighting for the rights of Iranian women and children.
