Iran must open Tehran trial to international observers - AI

"The trial now going on in Tehran appears to be nothing but a "show trial' through which the supreme leader and those around him seek to de-legitimize recent mass and largely peaceful protests and convince a very skeptical world that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was re-elected fairly for a second term as president," said Amnesty Secretary General Irene Khan.
