In this box, as an ongoing project, RFE/RL's Journalists in Trouble page will monitor and maintain a list of Iranian journalists who are in prison.

The list is the work of staff members of Radio Farda, RFE/RL's Farsi speaking service, and is the product of information they glean from relatives, friends, colleagues and lawyers of the detainees. In addition, Radio Farda draws on the research of other media advocacy and human rights groups, including Reporters without Borders, Human Rights Campaign for Iran, the Committee to Protect Journalists and Radio Zamaneh, that seek to combat and document violations of free speech. The list will be updated on a biweekly basis.
