High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell confirmed on Tuesday a report that claimed that an EU diplomat has been illegally incarcerated in Iran for over 500 days. Borrell named the official as Johan Floderus, a Swedish national.

Borrell said that his team, other European institutions, and Swedish authorities “have been pushing the Iranian authorities to release” Floderus. He stated the issue was raised “every time we had diplomatic meetings at all levels” and that the EU has been working “relentlessly” for the diplomat’s freedom.
