The U.S.-based Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI) has urged the international community to sanction Iran for sentencing Iranian-Swedish dissident Habib Chaab to death after “luring” him to Turkey and taking him to Iran. Chaab was tried and condemned for leading a “terrorist group” and organizing and carrying out “numerous bombings and terrorist operations” in southwestern Iran. Chaab is a founder and former leader of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz separatist group. CHRI said in a statement that governments should impose “political and economic consequences” on Tehran for its “hostage-taking.”
