Last week, Mr. Nizar Zakka, a U.S. Legal Permanent Resident, was sentenced to 10 years in captivity and fined millions of dollars by the Iranian regime. Mr. Zakka was unlawfully detained by Iranian officials in September 2015 in Tehran and has since been held hostage by the Iranian regime. Mr. Zakka’s U.S. attorney, Mr. Jason Poblete, issued the following statement urging the United States to press the Iranians for the unconditional release of Mr. Zakka on humanitarian grounds.
