NUFDI to Amnesty: Help Imprisoned Dissident in Iran

Dear Mr. O’Brien,

As the Islamic Republic in Iran continues its four decade-long campaign against the people of Iran, especially pro-democracy dissidents, it has again imprisoned Abbas Vahedian Shahroudi. Mr. Vahedian Shahroudi has been imprisoned for more than a week with little to no news of his whereabouts or status. Sources inside the country indicate he has been imprisoned by the IRGC’s Intelligence apparatus.

We write to urge Amnesty International to urgently take up his case and pressure the regime in Iran to release him and all political prisoners at once.

National Union for Democracy Iran (NUFDI)
