Press Release: IHRC Calls for Release of BBC Reporter Alan Johnston

The Islamic Human Rights Commission is very concerned about claims on al-Jazeera news that BBC journalist Alan Johnston's kidnappers are demanding the release of Muslim detainees in Britain in exchange for his release.



IHRC calls for the release of British journalist Alan Johnston and condemns any attempt to link his plight to that of Muslim detainees in Britain .



Chairman of the IHRC, Massoud Shadjareh , stated:



“We are calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Alan as there can be no justification for the kidnapping and detention of innocent people in any part of the world.”





For more information, please contact IHRC on (+44) 20 8904 4222 or (+44) 7958 522 196 or email info@ihrc.org [ENDS]
