Iran's former ambassador to Jordan, Nosratollah Tajik, who is under house arrest in Britain based on false allegations, has written a letter to former U.S. boxing champion Mohammad Ali Clay, requesting him to pursue his case.

Tajik, who is accused by the U.S. of arms smuggling, also requested Clay to take actions to help release Iranian nationals, including Shahrzad Mir-Qolikhan, who are being detained in the U.S. illegally and are being mistreated.

Clay sent a letter to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in March 2011, in which he called on the Leader to take necessary measures to release three U.S. citizens, who were arrested in Iran in 2009.

Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer, and Joshua Fattal were arrested by border guards on July 31, 2009 after illegally entering Iran's territory from Iraq's Kurdistan region. The three have been charged with illegal entry and espionage.
