"Today marks the 467th day Jason has been imprisoned in Iran. This morning, the Associated Press reports that Iranian state TV that Jason Rezaian has been convicted. He was arrested back in July of 2014 on charges that included espionage. In a broadcast last night Iran judiciary spokesman said, quote, 'he has been convicted but I don't have the verdict's details.' The Washington Post executive editor Martin Baron has since released a statement that reads in part, quote, 'the guilty verdict represents an outrageous injustice'."
