The U.N.'s Working Group on Arbitrary Detention said Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, that Baquer and Siamak Namazi, two Iranian-Americans serving 10-year prison sentences on spying charges in Iran should be immediately freed and paid restitution, calling their "arbitrary" detention part of an "emerging pattern" by Tehran of targeting dual nationals.
