Iran: more

Human rights lawyer Mohammad Seifzadeh refuses to participate in his upcoming trial.
His wife told International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that her husband will not appear at this court session again for the same reason as before–he does not recognize the Revolutionary Court as qualified to review this case. He should be tried in the Tehran Province Criminal Court, in the presence of a jury qualified to review press and political charges.
Seifzadeh was arrested in April 2011.
