Security officials with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) have used the Internet to interrogate an employee of the London-based BBC Persian service, according to a February 2 report on the opposition website “IranGreenVoice.”
The report says the sister of a BBC reporter was detained and put in Tehran’s Evin prison, where the IRGC is thought to exert considerable control.
IRGC officials then contacted the reporter in London using e-mail information obtained from her detained sister.
They told the BBC staffer that if she talked to them, her sister would be released.
