Iran's persecution of BBC Persian Service journalists & their families - UN Geneva press conference

The UN BBC press conference will take place on Monday 12 March from 14.00 at Geneva’s Palais des Nations in press room 2.

Speakers include:

  • Tarik Kafala - Controller, BBC World Service Languages
  • Kasra Naji - Special Correspondent for BBC Persian TV
  • Jeremy Dear - Deputy General Secretary of the International Federation of Journalists.

For the first time in its history, the BBC is making an appeal to the United Nations in Geneva about protecting the human rights of BBC journalists and their families.

This unprecedented move comes in response to years of persecution and harassment by the Iranian authorities.
