A leading coalition of Iranian opposition groups, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, has revealed the names of 29 political prisoners, as part of a bid to urge international action on Iran’s human rights abuses and expanding crackdown on domestic dissent. Iran Human Rights Monitor reproduced the list on Thursday, with each name accompanied by a date of arrest spanning from June 2018 to March 2019.
