Latest Detentions in Iran or, Kidnapping as a Political Weapon (3)

Dr. Haleh Esfandiari

Dr. Kian Tajbakhsh

The NYRB this week contains letters demanding the release of Dr. Haleh Esfandiari and Dr. Kian Tajbakhsh, both of whom have been detained as "spys" by the Iranian government for nearly a month. These public letters are the latest in a series of such demands. You can find an updated report in The New York Times today. This, of course, is only the most recent of such detentions [*]. And it goes without saying that the Iranians should release both individuals immediately and unconditionally.
