Democracy in Africa previously joined the campaign to free our colleague Roland Marchal from jail in Iran. Wonderfully, he has been released, but Fariba Adelkhah, who was detained with him, remains in prison. Today, we act in solidarity with others around the world to demand her release.
We’ve been in lockdown for 20 days. Fariba Adelkhah, a researcher at the International Research Centre of Sciences Po Paris, has been in prison for 300 days in Iran. By posting her face on the websites of academic institutions and research teams in Europe and elsewhere, we want to show the support of the scientific community and urge the French government to do everything possible to secure her release.
Fariba Adelkhah is in danger. We must act urgently for her.
