, Index number: MDE 13/104/2008

The 12 university students named in this action were arrested at various locations across Iran in July and remain in detention. The 12 are facing various charges, such as "acting against national security", "propaganda against the regime", “propagating lies", "promoting anti-religious attitudes", and “disturbing public opinion”. They are prisoners of conscience, held on account of their conscientiously held beliefs and should be released immediately and unconditionally.
