Kianoosh Sanjari  (Persian: کیانوش سنجری) is an Iranian former blogger  who was arrested in Tehran on 8 October 2006 together with the cleric Hossein Kazemeyni Boroujerdi, and Kayvan Ansari  while reporting on clashes between the Basij forces and supporters of the secularist cleric.
Amnesty international emphasized the case of Sanjari in its campaign for freedom of expression irrepressible.info, as Sanjari's charges stopped him from commenting and reporting the clashes on his blog, in a country where state media is heavily censored.
"I feel that solitary confinement - which wages war on the soul and mind of a person - can be the most inhuman form of white torture for people like me, who are arrested solely for [defending] citizens' rights. I only hope the day comes when no one is put in solitary confinement [to punish them] for the peaceful expression of his ideas."
