Comment on Reza Shahabi prison sentence

16 April 2012

Commenting on the reported six year jail sentence handed down to Vahed Syndicate board member Reza Shahabi, ITF general secretary David Cockroft said: “This sentence is outrageous. A man whose health is failing is being condemned to years of imprisonment on farcical charges. The Iranian government has stooped to a new low. Surely there are still some within it who can reverse this horrendous persecution.”
