Categorised under the topics of Human rights and Iran.

That this House notes with concern the recent broadcasts from Iran in which Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, her son Sajjad Qadarzadeh, her lawyer Houtan Kian, and two German citizens, all of whom are currently in detention, appeared to give purported statements in connection with Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani's case; further notes that the two German citizens have been charged with espionage in Iran, following their interview with the son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani; calls on the Government to continue to remind Iran of its commitments as a signatory to the Universal Declaration on Human Rights 1948, and to ask the Iranian government to review Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani's case so that the threat of death no longer hangs over her; and furthercalls on the Iranian authorities to ensure fair trials and access to appropriate legal representation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
