Iran – Musicians’ arrest (January 11, 2013)
France deplores the arrest of five members of a music group deemed illegal by the Iranian authorities.
This arrest comes at a time of growing repression of the arts community in Iran.
We call on the Iranian authorities to end the repeated hindrances to the work of Iranian artists and guarantee full respect for freedom of expression, in accordance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Iran subscribed.
