Islamic Human Rights Commission voices concern over status of a number of inmates in Iran


Secretary of Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) Mohammad Hassan Ziaiefar on Saturday expressed concern over the status of a number of inmates such as Mohammad Mohsen Sazegara and Abbas Abdi, IRNA reported from Tehran.

According to the Public Relations Department of IHRC, Ziaiefar made the remarks in a meeting with members of groups supporting human rights in Iran.

Highlighting Iran's domestic and international situation, he said it was expected that all human rights advocates nationwide insist on observation of the rights of all citizens in the society such as political activists.

On the case of late Iranian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi, he said the Islamic Human Rights Commission has pursued the case from the earliest stages and there is no doubt that the representative of the Commission will attend the court proceedings.
