FCO: Minister ‘deeply concerned’ for Iranian human rights defender Sotoudeh

Foreign and Commonwealth Office press release

FCO minister ‘deeply concerned’ for Iranian human rights defender Sotoudeh

Commenting on the case of Nasrin Sotoudeh, who remains imprisoned in Iran, Minister for the Middle East and North Africa Alistair Burt said:

“I am deeply concerned for the well being of Nasrin Sotoudeh, the Iranian human rights defender imprisoned in Iran. Last week, she was a worthy winner of the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. I understand that she is on hunger strike in protest at the harassment of her family by the Iranian regime. I urge the Iranian authorities to cease the activities that have led Nasrin Soutoudeh to take this drastic step and to review her case and the baseless charges against her.”
