Following publication of a press release by Nokia Siemens Networks about the company’s halting all its activities in the area of monitoring technology with Iran, Shirin Ebadi who has had an active role in the negotiations with the company told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that the Company’s action is a major accomplishment for Iranian people and people of the world.

In a press release published last week, Nokia Siemens Networks referred to a meeting the multi-national company representatives had with Shirin Ebadi, discussing transparency. “Nokia Siemens Networks is aware of credible reports that the Iranian authorities use communications technology to suppress political activity in a way that is inconsistent with that government’s human rights obligations,” stated the press release. “As a result of these credible reports, Nokia Siemens Networks halted all work related to monitoring centers in Iran in 2009. Nokia Siemens Networks divested its monitoring center business in 2009 and will no longer provide monitoring centers to any country,” it added. The statement further added that as a result of these reports, “the company has voluntarily restricted its business in Iran by not seeking or accepting new customers and by limiting its activities with its current customers.”
