Iran sends French-Iranian academic back to jail at key point
in nuclear talks

France says Fariba Adelkhah’s unexplained return to prison will damage efforts to revive 2015 curbs on nuclear programme

Iran has sent back to prison from house arrest French-Iranian academic Fariba Adelkhah, a shock development in the midst of delicate talks on the Iranian nuclear drive.

Adelkhah was sentenced in May 2020 to five years in prison for conspiring against national security, accusations her supporters have always denounced as absurd. She was allowed home in Tehran in October 2020 with an electronic bracelet.
