To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what steps the Government made to seek to halt the execution of Mr Ramin Hussein Panahi in Iran.
The British Government supported an EU-led demarche in Spring 2018 calling on Iran to ensure Mr Panahi’s right to due process was guaranteed. Regrettably, our efforts were unsuccessful and Mr Panahi was executed in September. We continue to take action with the international community to press for improvements on all human rights issues in Iran, including ending the death penalty.
