German official condemns regime for systematic abuses

A human rights official in Germany has strongly criticized the Iranian regime’s abysmal and systematic human rights violations, saying that the German government considers such abuses to be unacceptable, Germany’s official radio station reported on Thursday.

Markus Löning, Germany’s Federal Government Human Rights Commissioner, specifically pointed to a hunger strike by female rights activist and lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, who has been imprisoned by the clerical regime for more than two months. He called for Ms. Sotoudeh’s immediate release.
