French citizen arrested for drone flights near Iran border

Last week an Iranian court sentenced Benjamin Brière to eight years in prison after flying his drone near the Turkmenistan-Iran border. Brière was arrested in May of 2020 and has been on a hunger strike since Christmas to protest his mistreatment.

France believes this is a political move due to ongoing negotiations on a new Iran Nuclear Deal. In response, Iran has labeled France as a “hostile nation.” There are also concerns coming from Brière’s Iranian-based lawyers about how the trial went.

This is a very messy situation, especially since Brière is both a foreigner and an Iranian citizen as he holds dual citizenship status.
