Top Iranian cleric calls for release of female sailor

In the on again, off again talk of the Iranians releasing the female hostage among the 15 sailors behind held by the mullahs, a top cleric is calling for her release.

From Mehr News:

Hojatoleslam Mohammad Ali Rahmani, the representative of Supreme Leader in Iran’s police force, called on Friday for a quick release of a British woman sailor as a “goodwill” gesture which would show Iran’s respect to women.

Did Rahmani have say that with a straight face?

Odd thing about Ms. Tunney: Was her decision to wear a veil voluntary? Or did the Iranians offer that to her as a sign of "respect."
