Support for Olivier Vandecasteele

In Institution Citizenship

Rector Anne-Sophie Nyssen supports the demand for the release of Olivier Vandecasteele, an aid worker arbitrarily imprisoned in Iran.

"Ladies and Gentlemen,

The media inform you of the dramatic and intolerable situation in which our compatriot Olivier Vandecasteele, an aid worker arbitrarily imprisoned in Iran, has found himself. His sentence has just been increased to 40 years imprisonment and 74 lashes...

Amnesty International supports the release of Olivier Vandecasteele, the organisation has placed him on the list of people in danger. This is why I invite you, as we did a few years ago for Hamid Babaei, to sign the Amnesty International petition without delay:

Petitions "Free Olivier Vandecasteele immediately"  

Olivier Vandecasteele has been a victim of torture, he has been in total isolation since the beginning of his detention in February 2022, and has numerous health problems. He is in immense physical and psychological distress. He urgently needs our support.

I also invite you to put up the poster attached to this message.

I thank you for your support, which joins that expressed by the universities of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.

Yours sincerely

Anne-Sophie Nyssen
