South Korea Goes After Blogger; And in Iran, Blogger Dead

It’s getting to be a dangerous world out there for bloggers. A South Korean blogger who was arrested in January faces up to 18-months in jail. A verdict is expected April 20th. The blogger — known as “Minerva” — has been a fierce critic of that country’s economic policies. He became famous after several of his predictions came true, including the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Full story here.

In Iran, where blogging has become a major outlet of opinion and dissent, a blogger has died in prison, after being jailed for violating what the regime had called crimes against Islamic law.
