Jailed Iranian Baha’i leader appears on Dutch postage stamp

A series of special postage stamps portraying victims of human rights abuses in Iran has been launched in the Netherlands.

Current and forthcoming stamps in the series depict the acclaimed poet Simin Behbahani; trade unionist Mansour Osanlou; Mahvash Sabet - one of Iran's seven Baha'i leaders; and human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh.

The stamps are officially accepted by the Netherlands' national postal service and are valid for use on mail.

The initiative was the brainchild of Mina Saadadi, managing editor of media organization Shahrzad News, which produces radio programs and online content in Persian and English.
