James Cleverly – 2023 Statement on the Execution of Habib Chaab

The statement made by James Cleverly, the Foreign Secretary, on 7 May 2023.

I am appalled at news the Iranian regime executed Swedish-Iranian dual national Habib Chaab.

The UK strongly opposes the death penalty. We call on the regime to stop all executions, now.

We will continue to work with Sweden and other partners to hold this regime to account.
