Iranian Journalist Credits Blogs

The Online Journalism Review (OJR) has an article by Mark Glaser today about how an Iranian journalist credits blogs for playing a key role in his release from prison.
The conservative Islamic government is forced to take notice of the broad coverage given to Sina Motallebi's arrest and the ensuing online petition drive demanding his freedom. In a wide-ranging interview, he tells OJR about the 23 days spent behind bars, and how the events led to his leaving his homeland and moving to Holland.
My question: What happened to Amnesty International?
