The headquarters of Free University of Brussels witnessed hundreds protesting to condemn the execution of Swedish-Iranian academic Ahmad Reza Jalali in Tehran.

The university, in cooperation with Amnesty International, organized the demonstration and included a march of solidarity with Jalali to condemn his death sentence, which coincided with the International Day Against the Death Penalty on October 10.

It should be noted that the charges against Jalali came after his refusal in 2014 to exploit his academic relations in Europe and spy for Iran, prompting the Iranian regime to arrest him under accusations of treason and sentence him to death.
