Programmer Sentenced To Death In Iran For Upload Software


Human rights groups call for Saeed Malekpour to be released and allege torture
.
On January 20, 2012 by Iris Cheerin 47


The Iranian Government has sentenced Saeed Malekpour, an Iranian-born web programmer living in Canada until his 2008 arrest, developed software for uploading images online, to death

According to AFP reports, the programmer, who was arrested by Iranian police when he entered the country to visit his terminally ill father, was sentenced to death in December 2010, but this was annulled after the Canadian Government stepped in to oppose the verdict.

Corruptor of the Earth

The death sentence has now been re-instated amid protests by his supporters and international human rights watchdog Amnesty International, which said that Iran must not execute the web programmer, who was sentenced after one of his web programs was used to post pornographic images without his knowledge.

This man is a computer progammer and to be arrested for this his software being used by a 3rd party is not Saeeds Fault,this is the Iranian Goverment Nutcases showing again their UGLY HEAD,i am disgusted at these so called Clerics who run a country that is also putting the world in Danger,where are they going to put a stop to this total disrespect for the Human Being.

I really feel sorry for our Iranian Members and Friends because they must also be sick of this kind of thing coming out of Their country.

Death for uploading pornographic images ? thats pretty terrible. Its like lunatics are running the country killing whoever they want.

I feel sorry for the people living in there. They should unite and do a revolution movement or something.

This is IMPORTANT,the only reason i posted this Topic is because the young man Saeed is a computer programmer,and that is relevent to our members because of the nature of our Trainers thats made by CHU programmers.This Topic has nothing to do with what is happening in IRAN,i am sorry for our Iranian members because they must also feel awefull about this CRAZY situation for SAEED,so once again i meant no offense to our Iranian friends and members.Just to finish a member sent me a Private Message (Who lives in Iran) which was not very nice,he won't send me anymore i dont think,this Message is to put the record straight.We all live in a free world in the west and if we can't comment via a Topic thats relevent to us all then something is wrong.

Being a computer programmer (computer scientist/engineer/etc) isn't really the key point. It's bad in that a nation is forcefully taking away Canada's rights to practice its own laws and enforcement methods considering he is a permanent resident in Canada. The case is that he did his job in business that is deemed illegal in Iran but they should not have any right to arrest him and convict him since the alleged crime did not take place in their jurisdiction. If they had this much of a problem with it, they should have barred him from entering their nation via customs (which is harsh but at least fair in the sense they do not want him in their nation).

The computer science discipline isn't a special club and I've never thought of it in such a way. Blind pride like that in mass rallying behind like that usually causes more damage than helping the situation. From a computer (and any) scientist's view, we have enough voice to notice the problem and it is more effective to find a solution to the problem rather than output more noise (which is to say good leadership and a team that is able to utilize resources to get him back to Canada).

We do not like to restrict speech but it drives us up a wall if time is wasted raising discussing rather than solving the problem. There is an old Korean saying that if too many people are given a paddle to row a boat, the boat winds up in the mountains by mistake. What has been said about the poor guy's situation has already been said and hope that the Canadian government can resolve the issue without him dying.

PS: Also you can forward rude PMs to a moderator since it is a severe violation of our rules if they are out of line.

Im sad to say but this world isnt as free as it could and should be. This topic proves it. With no ill intent towards anyone from any middle eastern/Asian countries. There are many countries leaderships like the one listed that view free speech and free press as a threat. If one has to fear that the program he writes or the message he posts will get him killed even for something unrelated to them otherwise this world would be in a much deeper state of technical dark age then we are already.
