Hassan Dai (Daioleslam) is a human rights activist, political analyst and editor of the Iranian American Forum. He is well-published in Farsi and English and has frequently appeared as an expert guest on the Voice of America and major Persian language media.
Dai studied at Tehran Polytechnic University where he was a student leader before and after the revolution. With deteriorating situation for political activists Dai left Iran and moved to France. In Europe he worked with the Iranian secular groups on human rights issues. With this regards he provided extensive reports to the United Nation’s bureau in Geneva documenting severe violation of human rights violations in Iran.
In 2001 Dai migrated to the United State and focused on US-Iran relations investigating and reporting the Iranian regime's disguised web of lobby and advocacy in the US. His reports on pro-Tehran lobby have been largely published in English and Farsi websites and journals.
In 2008 NIAC (National Iranian American Council) and its president Trita Parsi, whose illicit advocacy on behalf of the Iranian regime in the US had been revealed by Dai, filed a law suit against him. The documents discovered in the process of this law suit have found a historic role in exposing the Iranian regime’s complex machinery in the West. In November 2009, in a front page article, Washington Times featured an article based on these discovery documents.
On September 13, U.S. District Judge John Bates dismissed the lawsuit and granted summary judgment to Hassan Dai.
In a second ruling, judge sanctioned NIAC and Trita Parsi for discovery abuses including false declaration to the court and ordered them to pay significant part of Daioleslam's legal expenses.
