Iranian human rights activist Mehr Angizkar has harshly criticized Iran's continued detention of American-Iranian academics Drs. Haleh Esfandiari and Kian Tajbakhsh, who have been held in solitary confinement for 100 days so far.
Ms. Angizkar said that even if Drs. Haleh Esfandiari and Kian Tajbakhsh had not been physically tortured, their imprisonment was seriously damaging their physical and mental state, such that it was doubtful whether they would ever completely recover.
