Ahmadreza Djalali, a medical doctor and lecturer at the karolinska institute in Stockholm, was arrested in Iran in 2016 during an academic visit.

He was accused of providing information to Israel to help it assassinate several senior nuclear scientists.

He was sentenced to death by the Revolutionary Court in Tehran in 2017.

Djalali said he had been forced to confess while being subjected to torture and other ill-treatment.

Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde reacted to ISNA’s report on Twitter.

Sweden and the EU condemn the death penalty and demand that Djalali be released, she also said we have repeatedly stated this to Iranian representatives. We are in contact with Iran.
