Grandpa Kamal’s son Kamran was recently interviewed by Syed Kamall MEP (head of the ECR group at the European Parliament) to discuss pan-European lobbying for Grandpa Kamal’s release.
To mark the start of Ramadan Grandpa Kamal’s son Kamran was invited onto Voice of America to discuss his father’s 5 long years in Evin prison. Interview mainly dubbed into farsi, with a little English.
On 19 May 2016, there was a UK Parliament debate where MPs from almost all major parties asked the Foreign Office why Grandpa Kamal had not yet been released. At the debate the Foreign Office revealed that France, Germany and Italy had all asked Iran to free Grandpal Kamal. We are very grateful for our European partners’ solidarity.
Grandpa Kamal’s Change petition will be delivered to UK PM David Cameron, EU Foreign Affairs Lead and the Iranian embassy London very soon. Please watch this video from his son Kamran thanking you for your support and asking you keep sharing the petition
We held a peaceful protest outside the Iranian embassy London to mark the 5 year anniversary of Grandpa Kamal’s detention in Evin Prison.
EU leaders should stop ‘premature’ rush to improve ties with Iran until Briton is freed, urges son.
In recent weeks, Kamal Foroughi’s son Kamran has written two letters to Dr Mohammad Javad Larijani, the Head of the Human Rights Council of the Iranian Judiciary.
The first dated 23 March 2016 relates to the application for Mr Foroughi’s clemency.
The second dated 2 April 2016 relates to the lack of information provided about Mr Foroughi’s 17 November 2015 medical.
Below are copies of these letters, in English and farsi.
