U.S. Needs to Do More to Secure Nizar Zakka’s Unconditional Release
One year ago, as of yesterday, Internet/ICT professional Mr. Nizar Zakka was unlawfully detained by Iranian authorities on the streets of Tehran. Mr. Zakka, a U.S. Legal Permanent Resident and Lebanese national, was invited by the Iranian government to attend a conference in Tehran.
The following press release by Mr. Zakka’s U.S. lawyer, Mr. Jason Poblete, comes after Amnesty International released a second “Urgent Action” alert on the deterioration of Mr. Zakka’s health, which he has yet to receive necessary medical attention for.
For more information on the circumstances of Mr. Zakka’s arrest, please visit the Friends of Nizar Zakka website.
