Park IP Translations Provides Critical Trial Support
New York, NY- Apr. 30, 2012- Park IP Translations has provided critical language support to the defense of Amir Hekmati in order to help overturn his death sentence. Amir Hekmati, a United States Marine charged with espionage on behalf of the CIA for the United States, was arrested last year while visiting his grandmother in Iran. Amir was forced by Iranian authorities to make a recorded public statement corroborating the charges and was subsequently sentenced to death. Park then assisted the defense, led by Ambassador Pierre-Richard Prosper of Arent Fox LLP, in the translation of court documents for the appeal of the sentence. In addition, Park translated public statements and declarations of Amir’s innocence into Farsi for Amir’s family. The result of the appeal was the vacating of Amir’s death sentence and the declaration of a retrial.
Park IP welcomes the opportunity to provide translation services to meaningful causes. Helping to break the barriers of communication in a very trying criminal case overseas is just one of the many ways that Park IP is helping the non-profit community. In addition to supporting the defense of Amir Hekmati in Iran, Park IP helps support many other causes such as Michael J.
Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and the It Gets Better Project™.
