Leading Iranian human right activist arrested

By Naila Missous

Human rights defender Narges Mohammadi was arrested over the weekend and transferred to Evin prison’s women’s ward.

She has been issued with a six-year prison sentence.

The press advocacy group said Mohammadi was and taken to Tehran’s notorious Evin prison, where many political dissidents continue to be held and where many are believed to have been subjected to torture following the country’s, massive 2009 anti-government uprisings.

Mohammadi, who has muscular paralysis, was sentenced to 11 years in jail, a term reduced to six years at an appeal hearing early last month. This was after finding her guilty on charges of spreading propaganda against the ruling system, acting against national security and membership of Iran’s Defenders of Human Rights Centre (DHRC).

DHRC is headed by Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi.

On Wednesday, Paris-based media watchdog Reporters Without Borders “strongly” condemned Mohammadi’s arrest.
