I, as Chair of Writers in Prison Committee of Norwegian PEN am seriously concerned about the detention of Iranian Kurdish journalist Kaveh Javanmard, who has been held without charge since 18 December 2006.
Norwegianl PEN is also seeking reassurances of his well being from the Iranian government.
Norwegian PEN fears that he is being detained solely for the peaceful exercise of his right to free expression, and if so calls on the Iranian authorities to release him with immediate effect.
I am also deeply concerned about an apparant pattern of repression against journalists and human rights activists in Iranian Kurdistan
Confident that you, Your Excellency, will take action accordingly, I remain,
Elisabet W. Middelthon/sign.
