Iranian representatives thank the Club de Madrid for the letter sent to Ali Khāmene’I

April 08, 2011

Former members of the Iranian Parliament and current opposition thanked the Club de Madrid for its March 16 letter to Ayatollah Ali Khāmene’I through which it expressed its concern about the abduction of Mr. Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mr. Mehdi Karoubi, former Prime Minister and Parliament Speaker of Iran and prominent candidates to the presidential elections, together with their respective wives. “Having received considerable echo within international and national media, this initiative was felt as a crucial support for all those fighting for freedom in Iran”, they say.   

We welcome the recent move by the Iranian authorities that allow the families of MM. Mousavi and Karoubi to visit them. We hope that this involves a first step towards the full restoration of these people and families’ rights and the legitimate protection granted by Iranian and international law.

Club de Madrid Members Wim Kok, César Gaviria, Abdul-kareem Al Eryani, Al Sadiq Al Mahdi, Valdis Birkavs, Kjell Magne Bonbdevik, Lionel Jospin, Chandrika Kumaratunga and Cassam Uteem signed the letter on behalf of the Club de Madrid. Fernando Henrique Cardoso and Zlatko Lagumdzija joined the initative a posteriori.
