Supporters: French-Iranian academic detained in Iran returns to prison after brief leave
(MENAFN) A French-Iranian academic detained in Iran for the last three years in a charge that has elevated conflicts among Tehran and Paris has returned to jail after a brief leave, her supporters stated.
Fariba Adelkhah was last week permitted to go out of Tehran’s Evin jail for five days.
Optimisms that the procedure could be stretched were not rewarded, her support group stated in an announcement issued late Sunday.
It stated that “Unfortunately, Fariba’s five-day leave was not extended, or transformed into house arrest,” adding that “It gave her a break, but it’s still bad news.”
Protestors mentioned that more than 20 foreign and dual nationals are being detained by Tehran on unjustified charges, in a deliberate policy of hostage diplomacy targeted at removing concerns from the West.
Adelkhah’s brief leave derives at a vital time in the discussions among world powers as well as Iran around the Iranian nuclear program, with Tehran reviewing a final offer from the EU targeted at salvaging a 2015 agreement.
