We are 129 members of the academic community in the United Kingdom and beyond, including Austria, China, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the U.S., working at the forefront of computer science, mathematics, and machine learning.

We are deeply concerned about the arrest of our colleague, Professor Abbas Edalat, in Iran (Report, 3 May).

Many of us have known Abbas for decades as a kind, caring, decent, and honorable man, of great intellect and integrity.

In addition to inflicting inexplicable suffering on our colleague, teacher, and friend, Abbas's detention is causing a lot of harm to the academic community in the United Kingdom, in Iran, and worldwide.
