Omid Memarian (in Persian: امید معماریان) (born 1974~ ) is an Iranian journalist and blogger. He was awarded the Golden pen at the National Press Festival in Iran at 2001. He has been blogging since 2002, in English and Persian, and has written for Iranian daily newspapers such as Hayat-e No (New Life), Yas-e-no (New Jasmin), Vaqaye-e Ettefaqiyeh (Occurring Events) and Sharq (or Shargh = meaning East). He is well known for his regular news analysis columns and blogs in English and Persian.

Memarian received his bachelor's degree in metallurgy from the Islamic Azad University in Karaj[citation needed]. He was the editor of Volunteer Actors Quarterly which dealt with civil society issues.[1]

In 2004, Memarian attempted to attend a conference on Iranian civil society in New York. He had obtained a US visa, but en route in Frankfurt, US authorities refused to allow him to board his flight, saying that he was on a No Fly List. They provided no other information. He was arrested a few days after his return to Tehran.[2]

Arrest and detention

On 10 October, 2004, Memarian was arrested on the orders of the Tehran Prosecutor's Office's Ninth Chamber. He was detained for posting articles on several reformist newspapers, his blogs and online publications, and was charged with spreading a "dark picture of the country and stoking women's issues."[3] Five days later the authorities also searched Memarian's home and confiscated his personal notes and computer.[citation needed] He was detained until mid-December 2004. According to Human Rights Watch, Memarian and other journalists who had been detained were subjected to torture and solitary confinement,[4] but before their release they were coerced into signing a confession letter which stated that they had been detained under good conditions.[5] Memarian has described his imprisonment and the interrogator's process of extracting a confession from him in interviews with National Public Radio.[6][7]

Current work and awards

Memarian works as a freelance writer for the IPS (Inter Press Service) news agency Rooz Online, and BBC Persian. He has had op-ed pieces published in New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, Opendemocracy.net and Contra Costa Times.[citation needed]

In 2005, he received the Human Rights Defender Award, Human Rights Watch's highest honor, for his courageous work as a human rights activist.[8]

Omid Memarian was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism in 2005-2006 and was a Rotary Peace Fellow at the Journalism School in 2007-2009.[1][9]
