Rabi Nikoo Granted Asylum

Published fredag 11 november 2005 kl 17.11
Zahra Kazemi died while under arrest in Tehran.

The Iranian radio reporter, Rabi Nikoo has been granted asylum in Sweden.

This overturns a previous decision to have him deported. The verdict comes as a relief to the journalist who claimed he would be imprisoned and tortured if returned to Iran. Nikoo had interviewed a doctor who testified that he had treated the tortured and murdered Canadian journalist Zahra Kazemi.

The original decision to deport Rabi Nikoo has been contrasted in the media to Canadian authorities’ granting of asylum to the doctor.
