Iran (Human Rights) — [Dr William McCrea in the Chair]
Jo Swinson (East Dunbartonshire, Liberal Democrat)
The hon. Gentleman is making a compelling contribution about the distressing persecution of the Christian minority in Iran, as Mrs Ellman did about the Baha’i. Does he agree that it is bizarre that the Iranian Government claimed to support the Arab spring, when people were demanding democracy, freedom and human rights, while they oppress their citizens and abuse their human rights in the most appalling way, whether on the basis of religion, sexuality or for daring to express a political viewpoint?
