On August 2, Maryam Malekpour was finally reunited with her brother Saeed in Vancouver after she had campaigned tirelessly for 11 years to free him from prison in Iran.
“The nightmare is finally over!” Maryam wrote on Twitter. “Together we prevailed.”
Maryam thanked “every single person who supported us throughout this time.”
Saeed, a permanent resident of Canada, was arrested in Iran in October 2008 while on a visit to his dying father.
