Statement on the False Reports Concerning Unlawfully Detained Internet Freedom Advocate Nizar Zakka

The following statement was issued by Mr. Nizar Zakka's attorney in the United States, Mr. Jason I. Poblete regarding false statements reported by various news agencies on February 22. 

According to an Associated Press (Tehran) report published by ABC News at 6:26 a.m. EST, U.S. resident Nizar Zakka “confessed.”

Mr. Zakka’s lawyer in the United States, Mr. Jason Poblete, says any reports alleging that Mr. Zakka confessed are “absolutely false.” “This is just another ploy by a segment of the Iranian government designed to distract from the ongoing hostage crisis,” Poblete added.

“On behalf of Nizar, and all other U.S. hostages and westerners, we urge the Trump Administration and the Congress to do everything possible to secure the immediate and unconditional release of Nizar and all other U.S. and westerners unjustly detained in Iran,” Poblete concluded.
