Hostage Taking by Nation States, Crime Against Humanity

From the U.K. Guardian, ‘Hostage diplomacy’ behind Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s Kafkaesque ordeal‘ –

“Jason Poblete, the lawyer that helped free the Lebanese businessman Nizar Zakka after four years in an Iranian jail, also argues governments should put hostage-taking top of the agenda, and simply say “until you release all hostages, we are not going to talk to you about nuclear proliferation. These are crimes against humanity.” From the Iranian perspective, Iranians being held abroad are either victims of illegal sanctions or national security agents.”
