Norway says Iran confiscated Nobel Peace Prize from Iranian activist


www.cnn.com

(CNN) -- Iranian authorities confiscated the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize given to human rights activist Shirin Ebadi, Norway said Thursday.

"The medal and the diploma have been removed from Dr. Ebadi's bank box, together with other personal items. Such an act leaves us feeling shock and disbelief," Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store said in a written statement.

Norway did not explain how it had learned of the alleged confiscation, and there was no immediate reaction from Iran.

Well that's interesting.

What possible use could they make of something that belongs to one single person? It's not a national pride thing if the person who won it is on house arrest or worse.


"Earlier this autumn, he [Ebadi's husband] was arrested in Tehran and severely beaten. His pension has been stopped and his bank account has been frozen," the statement from Norway said.


That's pretty upsetting, the Iranian regime is getting very much out of hand if they can't even respect those who have one the prize, or their loved ones.

Thoughts Anyone?

Maybe they're sending a message to Obama "we're comin' for yours next!"

Heck, he didn't even do anything to deserve it yet.

What does that have to do with anything? Or do you just like to ramble on about nothing?

I ramble yes, but isn't pointing that out, and then making me respond waste even more bandwith?
Sorry ATS for being an ass.

Another sign of the regime losing the plot completely, and are even too scared of a peace prize.
