[Correspondence] Ahmadreza Djalali: questions everyone must ask

Dr Ahmadreza Djalali is hovering near death in an Iranian jail.1 The efforts of the international community in securing his release, as extensive as we can muster, seem increasingly ineffective, in great part due to the fact that all international petitions appear to have been ignored by the Iranian Government. Strong positions from the international community—ranging from Physicians for Human Rights,2 Amnesty International,3 the Swedish,1 Belgian,4 and Italian5 Governments, and multiple academic institutions worldwide—have fallen on deaf ears.
