As yet another British citizen is reportedly arrested in Tehran by Iranian security forces, political scientist Dr Majid Rafizadeh says the British government should hold the Iranian Regime to account for taking their citizens hostage.

British-Iranian anthropologist Kameel Ahmady, who originally hails from the Kurdistan region of Iran was arrested recently on an unknown charge, at a time of increased tensions between the UK and Iran.

Mr Ahmady has been living in Tehran and is well-known for the studies and research he has carried out on issues that are considered controversial in Iran. For example, he has written papers on the concept of “marriage blanc” which most countries consider to be unconsummated marriage but in Iran it is the opposite – a couple that live together but have not got married.

Recent reports state that seven people in Tehran have been sentenced to flogging, hand amputation and finger amputation in the city of Tehran. They were arrested for robbery.
