Despite White House Expectations, Iran Seems Even More Committed to Hostage-Taking

On Wednesday, it was reported that yet another person with Western citizenship, specifically an Iranian-British dual national, had been detained in the Islamic Republic amidst escalating tensions in the Persian Gulf. The BBC identified the arrestee, Kameel Ahmady, as a social anthropologist who has done research on such topics and female genital mutilation and the persistent practice of child marriage in Iran. This background raises the possibility that he has been targeted on the basis of perceived ideological challenges to the theocratic regime, but it is equally likely that his dual citizenship alone was sufficient motivation for security services to arrest him.

Tehran’s Appears Confident in British Restraint, but UK Strategy Remains Uncertain

Questions swirled on Tuesday about British foreign policy regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran. Such questions have been prevalent ever since Boris Johnson was installed as the UK’s new Prime Minister in late July.

Tens of thousands of people in Western Iran, who were evacuated from their homes due to floods, are being forced to shelter in the open air, subjected to cold and wet weather, without food or warm clothes.

Hamidreza Kazemi, the member of the Iranian parliament, said that many people “have spent two nights in the open, having fled to the mountains and have nothing”. He also noted that 60 villages in Lorestan are under floodwater, alongside half of Pol-e-Dokhtar and Mamoolan.

Announcement of Prisoner Releases Cannot Conceal Abuses in Iranian Justice System

By INU Staff

INU- It was reported on Thursday that Iranian authorities are supposedly planning the release of thousands of prisoners, as part of the ongoing commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Republic’s founding. Although some reports indicate that the number may run as high as 50,000, Iranian state media has been vague about the extent of the clemency gesture. Even less clear is the nature of the offenses for which sentences will be vacated or commuted. But statements from relevant officials suggest that the judiciary’s move will not be focused on political prisoners and that even if such persons are among those released, the regime will not acknowledge the political nature of their arrests.
