Adnan Hassanpour, a well-known Kurdish journalist and editor of now-defunct Kurdish-Persian weekly Aso has been released after spending almost 10 years behind bars.
Adnan Hassanpour was arrested in 2006 on charges of moharebeh, fighting with God. He was initially charged with "espionage," "acting against national security," and "active armed resistance against the state" (Moharebeh). In July 2007, he was convicted and sentenced to death by Marivan Revolutionary Court. 
 
Later, his sentence reduced to 15 years prison in exile. That conviction was overturned on appeal and he was retried on charges of working for outlawed parties and espionage, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).
 Adnan Hassanpour has been given several international free press awards from CPJ and PEN.
 
Hassanpour was imprisoned longer than any other journalist in Iran.
