London, 23 Feb - Imprisoned Iranian human rights activist Narges Mohammadi has penned an open letter to judiciary chief Sadegh Larijani to condemn the Judiciary for bowing down to Iran’s security agencies and denying prisoners their rights.

Mohammadi, who is serving 16 years for her human rights activism, wrote: “[You have] repeatedly claimed that the Judiciary is an independent institution. However, such claims do not match reality. They are only deceitful words that make a mockery of justice when a judicial system detains, convicts and punishes people according to the biased and malicious opinions of security-military agencies and denies prisoners their legal rights.”

London, 14 Feb - A British charity worker imprisoned in Iran on bogus spying charges is being psychologically tortured by the authorities of Iran, according to campaigners.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has been held in Iran for almost two years, is the victim of a “state-orchestrated campaign [of] psychological abuse" that meets United Nations criteria for torture, according to anti-torture charity Redress.

The charity have written to Professor Nils Melzer, the UN special rapporteur on torture, on behalf of the Free Nazanin campaign with evidence that Zaghari-Ratcliffe is being tortured to coerce the British Government to negotiate a deal for her release (i.e. paying a ransom to Iran) or force her to confess to spying on behalf of the UK and provide information about others.
