Jailed human rights lawyer denied due process

The sentence of Mohammad Oliayi Far has not been announced to him and therefore his case cannot be seen to in a court of review.

The wife of lawyer and prisoner of conscience Shohreh Taqati, said, “My husband has been jailed for close to five months for giving interviews to foreign media on charges of propagating against the government…”.

“In our opinion this charge  is wrong because there has not been propagation against the government. After my husband had a number of interviews on the execution of children under 18, especially in the case of Behnoud Shojayi, they filed a complaint against him and made a criminal record for him even as he had expressed his views about his profession”. (International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran – Aug. 26, 2010)
