The #FreeJohanFloderus campaign team invites you for a talk about Johan Floderus, in support of him and other illegally detained foreign citizens in Iran. Johan has been a resident of Brussels since 2015 and on 17 April 2022 his freedom was taken away when brutally kidnapped by Iran, after visiting Swedish friends in Iran. To read more about Johan, we invite you to visit the campaign website www.freejohanfloderus.org. The event will be in English and free of charge.

After efforts by the Belgian government, he was released on 26 May 2023 after 456 days of unlawful detention. Parts of his detention were in Evin Prison, where Johan is also detained and where they spent time together.
