Mr. David Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent representations have been made to the Iranian Government on the sentences on(a) Mr. Zabihullah Mahrami, (b) Mr. Musa Talibi, (c) Mr. Ataollah Hamid Nasirizadeh, (d) Mr. Zabihi-Moquaddan, (e) Mr. Kashefi-Najafabadi and (f) Mr. Manuchehro Khulusi.

Mr. Hain

We and our EU partners regularly raise with the Iranian authorities our concerns over their treatment of the Baha'i religious minority, particularly cases where the death sentence is involved. Most recently I raised the cases of Mr. Zabihi-Moquaddam, Mr. Kashefi-Najafabadi and Mr. Khulusi with Deputy Foreign Minister Sarmadi during a meeting on 7 March.
