    FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
    (xxx)A cartoonist in exile
    When editorial cartoonist Nik Kowsar left Iran in 2003 he escaped not
    one, but two serious threats on his life after depicting Ayatollah Mesbah
    Yazdi as a crocodile strangling a journalist. Jenny Vaughan spoke to
    Kowsar about power, the Green Movement and whether he ever plans to
    return to Iran.

    ETHICS

    ASK A MENTOR
    (xxx)How do I access government information?
    Q: What are some tips on using freedom of information to access
    government data and what specific kinds of records should I be asking
    for? Answer by investigative reporter Fred Vallance-Jones.
