According to The Iran Project, Nasser Kanaani stressed that Beeazaar’s safe return to his family was the result of continuous political and consular efforts.

The spokesman added that protecting the rights of Iranian citizens abroad is an important priority for the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Beeazaar, a former production manager at the Music and Song Department of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), was summoned and detained by French police in June. He has been vocal in his support for the Palestinian cause and in highlighting Israeli crimes in Gaza through social media.

His social media content has consistently focused on cultural issues related to the Muslim world and the Palestinian cause, which the French authorities now seem to be using as a pretext for his arrest and potential deportation.

The French interior ministry had accused Beeazaar of disseminating alleged Iranian “state propaganda” and promoting “anti-Zionism and anti-Americanism,” which they view as “political-religious interference”.
