Iran's rights chief calls on France to release Iranian pro-Palestine activist

Tehran, IRNA – The Iranian Judiciary's Deputy Chief for International Affairs and Secretary General of the Islamic Republic of Iran's High Council for Human Rights, Kazem Gharibabadi, has called on France to release an Iranian citizen detained by French police for expressing support for the Palestinians.

Gharibabadi stated in Farsi on his X account on Wednesday that the French police's detention of an Iranian citizen for advocating for the oppressed Palestinian people represents another shameful instance of France's approach to human rights.

"Yesterday, I conversed with his wife and the officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We are determined to protect our compatriots," he declared.

He emphasized, "This Iranian national must be released immediately."

Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani said on Wednesday that the ministry is pursuing the release of the detained Iranian national Bashir Bi-azar.
