Court in Netherlands to Hear Case of Iranian Students on December 10

Source: Iranian students community in Netherlands

Since July 2008, the Dutch Government has banned Iranian citizens, as well as Dutch citizens of Iranian descent, from parts of certain university graduate programs. In addition, five locations have been designated as forbidden for the latter group. This measure is presumably meant to avoid the spreading of 'proliferation sensitive information'. As you may have noticed, we have not accepted this extremely stigmatizing measure against Iranians, which, in effect, discriminates an entire group of people solely on the basis of their nationality. Securing any information can be perfectly achieved without such a discriminatory measure.

The Campaign of Iranian Students has taken legal actions against the Dutch government, and the case will soon appear before the court. Although the initial assessments are promising, we would like to ask for your help. Public support for this case, especially in the form of your presence during the court hearing, can significantly contribute to our cause. In addition, it will help us gain national and international media attention.

The court hearing is scheduled on Thursday 10th of December at 10:30 am at the Palace of Justice in The Hague. The Palace of Justice is within walking distance of The Hague Central Station. For address and directions please visit the

Please note that members of the public who wish to attend the hearing, are required to be present at the location at least 30 minutes before the start of the session (at 10 am), and should be able to present a valid ID card.
