Bahman Ahmadi Amouee

Bahman Ahmadi Amouee (born c. 1969) is an Iranian journalist and active critic of the Iranian government’s economic policies. He was imprisoned in the aftermath of the highly contested 2009 presidential election in Iran for his works as a journalist. Being accused of political and ideological charges, he served five years and four months in prison. Amouee has worked for many of Iran’s major pro-reform newspapers and has been always criticizing the Islamic Republic’s approaches in different fields of politics and economy as well as its approach in treating the political prisoners. Bahman Ahmadi Amouee is the author of a few famous books in the field of economy in Iran. He was the winner of the Hellmann-Hammett award in 2011 and the Oxfam Novib/PEN Award for Freedom of Expression in 2015.
