Tehran ignores petition to release artists

The organization dedicated to artistic freedom, “Freemuse”, together with the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI), launched a campaign for the release of the Rajabian brothers, peaceful artistic music producers, who were sentenced in May 2015 to six years in prison. The 5th of June marks one year of imprisonment. The signatories signed an “open letter” which states:  “the continued imprisonment of Mehdi and Hossein Rajabian is unacceptable and in complete violation of international human rights laws”. Some of the signatories appealed to Rouhani directly calling him to fulfil his pledges to improve human rights and protect the freedom of artistic expression.
