Roxana Saberi, former Miss North Dakota who competed in the 1997 Miss America Pageant, needs your support now more than ever!
Roxana is a U.S. journalist working in Iran, and has been unfairly imprisoned in Iran since Jan. 31, being held at Tehran's Evin prison.
In a recent interview, Roxana's father said his daughter told him she had met with a prosecutor in Tehran and been told she may be in prison for several months and possibly up to two years.
Aspokesman in the Iranian Foreign Ministry stated Roxana was working illegally after her press card was withdrawn two years ago. Roxana's father said she was arrested for buying a bottle of wine, which is banned under Iran's Islamic law and also confirmed that Roxana's credentials as a correspondent had been revoked. However, he said she had stayed in Tehran to pursue a master's degree and was doing research for a book about Iranian society.
