The families of a number of jailed ecologists have issued a joint letter to the Islamic Republic’s head of judiciary calling for the release of their loved ones.
In their letter dated 28th June, the relatives note that the conservationists were not given fair trials, with a number of violations being noted, yet their loved ones remain imprisoned. They brought up the same concerns in a letter less than two months previous to this. The “illegal procedure”, they explain, is still continuing.
