§ Mr. David Atkinson
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations has been made by Her Majesty's Government and the EU 431W to the Government of Iran regarding the recent murders in Iran of the Reverend Medhi Dibaj and the Reverend Tateos Michaelian; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
With our full support, the EU is asking the Iranian authorities for an immediate and complete investigation into these deplorable murders. We await further information and Tehran's response before considering how to follow up. We are also urgently seeking information about at least two other Christian pastors who are reportedly detained in Iran.
