In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declined to say whether his government would release Roxana Saberi, an Iranian-American freelance journalist based in Iran who was sentenced to eight years in prison on charges of being an American spy.
The “This Week” host speaks exclusively with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
“I am not a judge, and I do not pass judgment over judicial cases,” Ahmadinejad said in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “In Iran, the judiciary is independent. I have stressed like others she should be accorded her full rights.”
