According to two separate statistics prepared by The Communication Group Plc, before and during the Truth Commission including arranging activity in The Hague for journalists who attended the trial, almost one billion people worldwide followed the court through high profile press. In these statistics, which are published on Iran Tribunal website, the global nature of this campaign is demonstrated by the widespread international media that covered the story.
The statistics do not include millions of Iranians who followed the hearings through exiled Iranian high profile press and social networks. It is estimated that 40 millions have followed the hearings in Iran. Proceedings was streamed live at ‘Hotbird 11471 ver 27500 5/6’ throughout the hearings and there was regular updates via the website www.irantribunal.com and @IranTribunal Twitter feed and numerous Iranian websites. Exiled Iranian high profile radio and televisions that are watched by millions of people in Iran broadcast the hearings on daily bases.
