Netherlands Freezes Contacts With Iran Over Woman’s Execution

(RTTNews) – The Dutch government announced Saturday that it has frozen all contacts with Iran to protest against the hanging of a Dutch-Iranian woman on drug smuggling charges after having arrested her initially for participating in anti-government protests.

Bahrami was born in Iran, but she had gained Dutch citizenship later after moving to the Netherlands. Her family insists that the drug smuggling charges pressed against Bahrami were fabricated by the Iranian authorities.
