Iran’s Nasrin Soutoudeh is Under Arrest


News from Iran via Maggie Thornton:

Nasrin Soutoudeh, sometimes spelled Nasrine, is an Iranian female attorney representing Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi. Soutoudeh received a warning from the Iranian intelligence officials that she would be arrested if she continued to represent Ebadi. Ebadi fled Iran one day before the elections, in June 2009 and is living in London. Soutoudeh was arrested last Saturday and is believed to be in Tehran’s Evin prison.

[My first InstaLanche was over at Damian Penny’s blog – and the subject was the deteriorating plight of Iran’s women under Achmadi-Nejad.  I hope that Maggie succedes in raising awareness – Nasrin deserves Liberty.
