Ebrahim Nabavi Mocks Confessions

In Uncategorized on August 3, 2009 at 2:21 am

Mohammad Ali Abtahi is one of Iran’s most lovable clerics, also known as the “blogging mullah”. You can get to know him by watching his appearance on The Daily Show. When he was arrested, many people predicted that he would be forced to make false confessions under physical and / or psychological torture. This prediction recently came true. But before it did, famous Iranian comedian and satirist Ebrahim Nabavi posted a video on YouTube imagining what Abtahi’s confession might look like.

Here is the English translation.

It is worth noting that Nabavi himself was once arrested and forced to confess. He soon fled the country and announced that the confession was by force. As you can see, Nabavi had a lot of fun with this clip and you can too 🙂
