Sunak: Iran must react to death of British-Iranian national Akbari

(MENAFN) British Leader Rishi Sunak urged the Iranian administration to give answers regarding the death and funeral of British-Iranian dual national Alireza Akbari who was executed by Iran in January.

“The regime is prolonging the suffering of the family and it is sadly typical of that disregard for basic human dignity,” Sunak informed parliament.

“Iran must now provide answers about the circumstances of his death and his burial.”

On Jan. 14, Tehran resisted requests from the UK and the US and executed Akbari, who was Iran’s deputy defense minister.

That encouraged London to force a new round of restrictions against Iranian officials earlier this week.

Labour politician Andy Slaughter announced he was due to see a British foreign office minister on Thursday along with the family of Akbari, who had lived in Slaughter’s constituency, to look for the government’s assistance at “this time of greatest suffering.”
