7th February 2011, Comments 0 comments

The Dutch-Iranian woman Zahra Bahrami, who was executed in Iran last week, was buried at a secret location on Sunday afternoon. Her daughter, Banafsheh Najebpour, who lives in Tehran, was informed of this by the Iranian secret service. Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal has recalled the Dutch ambassador from Iran but, before he leaves, he will deliver a sharply-worded protest to the Iranian authorities about their "disrespectful treatment of Ms Bahrami's family".

The daughter passed the news of the burial to Sadegh Nageshkar of the Iranian human rights organisation HRADI and he informed Radio Netherlands Worldwide.
