Time.news – One of the best known Iranian human rights activists, Narges Mohammadi, was stopped in Tehran for a few hours, and then released, along with at least five others, including activists and trade unionists, while participating in a demonstration of solidarity with the protests for days in progress in the province of Khuzestan, on her knees for the lack of water, and in which at least three people were killed.
This was reported by the BBC in Farsi, which also reports the video of Mohammadi during the demonstration, organized today in front of the Ministry of the Interior and in which about thirty people took part.
Former collaborator of the lawyer and Nobel Prize winner Shirin Ebadi and herself a candidate for the prestigious award for her commitment in the fight for the rights in Iran, on Mohammadi a recent sentence hangs – still not carried out – to 30 months of detention and 80 frustrated for “spreading propaganda” against the Islamic Republic.
Today’s arrest does not appear to be linked to this affair and Mohammadi was released after a few hours. The woman’s husband, Taghi Rahmani, also an activist, but who lives abroad, reported on Twitter. The other protesters arrested with Mohammadi were also released.
