France says dual national Fariba Adelkhah arrested in Iran: statement

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Iran has detained Franco-Iranian dual national Fariba Adelkhah and France has yet to be given “satisfactory information” on her status, France’s foreign ministry said on Monday.

“The French authorities in this difficult context have taken steps with Iranian authorities to get information from them on her situation and the conditions of her arrest and asked for consular access,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll said in a statement.

“No satisfactory response has been given to these requests. France calls on the Iranian authorities to bring to light Mrs Adelkhah’s situation and reiterates its requests, in particular the authorization of consular access without delay,” she added.
