Bardia Taherpur has 28 Days to Leave Holland
Persian Dutch Network

The Persian dissident Mojtaba (Bardia) Taherpur is in danger of deportation from Holland to Iran. He told "Persian Dutch Network” today, September 4th, that the Dutch Immigration Office has rejected his asylum request. Taherpur, who was quite shocked, added: “IND has given me and my wife 28 days to leave the Netherlands.”

Taherpur problems began in 2005 when he was a student in Tehran. Iranian authorities prevented him from finishing his studies because of anti-government activities. Taherpur moved to Dubai to continue his studies and activities but during a short visit to his family in Tehran was sentenced to 1 month imprisonment and 80 lashes. Taherpur fled to The Netherlands through Turkey in November 2010.
