ICC Urges Canadian Action on Sotoudeh

Concerned about the worrying situation of Ms. Nasrin Sotoudeh, a courageous lawyer currently imprisoned in Iran for defending her political prisoner clients, the Iranian Canadian Congress wrote a letter to John Baird, Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, to urge Canadian involvement in the case.  Ms. Sotoudeh, a recent winner of the European Parliament’s prestigious Sakharov Prize, has been on hunger strike to protest her conditions of detention.  Her case is of tremendous concern to Iranian-Canadians. The text of the ICC’s letter to Minister Baird is below: http://iccongress.ca/articles/icc-urges-canadian-action-sotoudeh
