Amnesty International says Caspian Makan, the fiance of Neda Agha Soltan
, the young Iranian woman whose death was caught on video during the recent protests in Iran, has been held in detention since June 26 after he made a statement linking her murder to the pro-government Basij militia.
He is believed to be in detention in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison.
According to Amnesty, Makan told his family that if he signs a "confession" saying that the banned People's Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) killed her, then he may be released.
Amnesty says it fears he may be forced to sign such a "confession" under torture or other ill-treatment.
Makan was among those who witnessed Neda's horrific death on that street in Tehran on June 20.
