Further Information: Swedish-Iranian at Grave Risk of Execution in Iran: Ahmadreza Djalali

Amnesty – Swedish-Iranian academic Ahmadreza Djalali, arbitrarily detained in Iran for over eight years, is at grave risk of execution after exhausting all legal avenues to overturn his death sentence. From 26 June to 4 July 2024, he was on hunger strike in protest at his continued arbitrary detention following a prisoner swap between Iran and Sweden on 15 June 2024. Iranian authorities must quash Ahmadreza Djalali’s conviction and death sentence imposed following grossly unfair trial proceedings, and release him immediately.
