Former Master student Omid Kokabee still imprisoned in Iran

Omid was a student in our Master in Photonics between 2007 and 2009. He was arrested in 2011 when he went back to Iran for visiting his family. From then, he remains in prison. Last months he has been in hospital several times because of illness. The causes of arrest are not very clear, and guarantees had during this time are slim. Now, as indicated below, the "Committee of Concerned Scientists' (CCS) has appealed to the Iranian government for the release.
