He is accused of having published a press release against the death penalty and of having organized a protest sit-in during his detention in Evin prison in Tehran. In mid-January, a Franco-Iranian researcher, Fariba Adelkhah, detained since 2019 in Iran, was reincarcerated in Tehran for having violated the rules of her house arrest. And a few days earlier, the Iranian poet and dissident Baktash Abtin died in prison after contracting Covid-19 there, according to revelations from several human rights organizations.
