The United States on Thursday expressed «grave concern» over the human rights situation in Iran and potential court action against Nobel Prize-winning activist Shirin Ebadi.
Louis Fintor, a State Department spokesman, said the department was monitoring the case, which appeared to be part of a broader campaign by Tehran.
«The continued harassment and arrest of proponents of moderation, pluralism, and political reform are in violation of international standards of human rights,» Fintor said.
«We will continue to follow closely the government’s actions against Ms. Ebadi and others as well as the deteriorating situation in Iran, and will continue to raise this issue and our grave concern over the worsening human rights situation in Iran with friends and allies in the region.»
