Iran – Human rights situation (November 8, 2012)

France expresses its utmost concern at the steady deterioration of the human rights situation in Iran.

We are deeply shocked to learn that the blogger, Sattar Beheshti, has died in custody. We call on the Iranian authorities to shed full light on the circumstances of his death.

The increasing deterioration of detention conditions, recently denounced by 33 prisoners in Evin prison, is a major cause for concern for France. The crackdown against those who peacefully express dissent in Iran is unacceptable.
