FORMER NEWS 24 (HOUSTON) JOURNALIST TO BE FREED FROM IRAN!

DO YOU REMEMBER ROXANA FROM HER HOUSTON DAYS?

Iran has released imprisoned Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi, her lawyer said Monday.

Attorney Abdolsamad Khorramshahi said a prison official told him shortly before 6 p.m. Monday (9:30 a.m. ET) that Saberi had been freed. She did not go out the main gate, where reporters and others waited to see her.
Earlier, her father, Reza Saberi, said her release was imminent, and that he had signed paperwork. “We are very happy with the news,” he told CNN. “We were hoping for it.”
Iran’s state-run news agency IRNA, citing a judiciary spokesman, reported that the verdict against Roxana Saberi was “reversed in the appeal court and she is to be freed.”
Saberi, 32, was convicted last month on espionage charges in a one-day trial that was closed to the public. She was sentenced to eight years in prison. She denies the charges.
