IRIB ordered the removal of the name and the imagine of the Iranian actress Pegah Ahangarani from the movie “Closer“. The news was confirmed also by the press agency ISNA, which was involved in the production of the movie. It is the second time, in the last period, that the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting acts against Miss Ahangarani. She is disliked by the regime because of her political positions.
Pega Ahangarani was arrested in July 2009, for her support to the Green Wave Movement and to Mir-Hossein Mousavi. She was arrested again in 2011, while she was planning a travel in Germany in order to report about the FIFA Women’s World Cup for the Persian page of the Deutsche Well.
