§ Mrs. Mahon
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Government of Iran about executions in the past year; and what representations he has made on the assassination of Dr. Kazem Rajavi.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
We remain concerned at the high level of executions in Iran. We have made clear to the Iranian Government that we expect them to respond promptly to all the allegations made in the reports of the United Nations special representative on human rights in Iran, including those relating to executions.
We have not raised with the Iranian Government the case of Dr. Rajavi, which is still under investigation in Switzerland.
