#FreeRouhaniHostages

Under President Hassan Rouhani, the illegal detention of foreign and dual nationals has become a key strategy of the Iranian regime. These innocent individuals are then used as bargaining chips in Iran’s dealings with other nations.

As of now, at least 11 dual and foreign nationals are being held in Iran, facing a collective total of at least 87 years in prison and a death sentence.

In detention, these prisoners are subject to widespread human rights abuses. Humanitarian organisations have reported cases of torture, denial of medical care and prolonged solitary confinement amongst a great many other atrocities.
