Fair Trial For Ghoncheh Ghavami

EDM number 363 in 2014-15, proposed by Diane Abbott on 15/10/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Administration of justice, Human rights and Iran.

That this House is extremely concerned over the current condition of Miss Ghoncheh Ghavami, a 25 year old British Iranian woman who has been detained since June 2014 by the Iranian authorities, after attending a protest outside an all-male volleyball match against the ban of women at such sporting events in Iran; notes that for long periods of her arrest without trial she had been in solitary confinement and without access to her family or a lawyer; and encourages pressure on the Iranian government to release Miss Ghoncheh Ghavami who has reportedly been on hunger strike since 1 October 2014, to ensure her safety and a fair trial.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
