Lyn Brown West Ham MP question:
Foreign and Commonwealth Office
Iran: Prisoners
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will make representations to his Iranian counterpart on freedom of belief and expression in that country, including in the case of Mohammad Ali Taheri, when he visits Iran.
Answered by: Alistair Burt
Answered on: 23 November 2017
‹The Foreign Secretary hopes to visit Iran later this year where he will have discussions on a variety of topics, including on human rights issues. The human rights situation in Iran is of serious concern and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office continues to designate Iran as a human rights priority country. The case of Mohammad Ali Taheri is an example of how the Iranian authorities routinely deny their citizens the freedom to choose and practice their own religion or belief.
