Iran – Execution of Ruhollah Zam (12 December 2020)


Ruhollah Zam, a journalist who had been sentenced to death, was executed in Iran today.

France utterly condemns this serious infringement of the freedom of expression and freedom of the press in Iran. This is a barbaric and unacceptable act that is contrary to Iran’s international commitments. France reaffirms its unwavering opposition to the death penalty everywhere and under all circumstances.
