Iranian-French academic Adelkhah has returned to France from Iran, says Paris university

PARIS (Reuters) – Iranian-French academic Fariba Adelkhah – who had previously been held in prison in Iran – has returned to France from Iran, said Paris’ Sciences-Po university on Wednesday.

Iranian authorities had sentenced Adelkhah in 2020 to five years in prison on national security charges. She was released from Iran’s Evin prison earlier this year.
