Sarkuhi's wife has no news

BONN, Feb 18 (AFP) - Farideh Zebardschad, wife of imprisoned Iranian dissident writer Faraj Sarkuhi, said she had no news of her husband, in an interview with Deutsche Welle radio on Tuesday.

Zebardschad said she believed Iranian authorities were trying to use her husband to exert pressure on magistrates presiding over a trial in Berlin during which Iran has come under fire for the assassination of members of the Kurdish opposition in 1992.

The trial has led to a marked deterioration in relations between Germany and Iran.
