Consumed by anger and “severely depressed” is how Jason Rezaian, the journalist and former Chronicle contributor who has been imprisoned in Iran for more than 400 days, appeared during a visit with his mother and wife Tuesday — a day after reports surfaced that he was convicted in Tehran of unspecified charges.
Rezaian, 39, who was arrested in 2014, told his loved ones that he learned of his conviction while watching TV in Iran’s infamous Evin Prison.
“He’s really not in a great situation, not in a good place. He’s severely depressed. He’s angry that this is happening to him. He knows that he’s innocent,” his brother, Ali Rezaian, 44, of Mill Valley said after speaking by phone to their mother, Mary Rezaian.
