An Iranian musician has been banned from travelling abroad because his musical group includes women.
Regime border police confiscated Majid Derakhshani’s passport at Tehran airport, and he now faces prosecution for the ‘offence’.
Mr Derakhshani said in an interview: “The border police officers at Tehran airport confiscated my passport and told me that if I wanted to know the reasons for the travel ban, I should ask the passport authority.”
Mr Derakhshani said Iranian security officials had regularly summoned members of his group for questioning because it includes women musicians.
His group’s first concert in Europe took place in October 2013 with the participation of two women singers.
Regime agents had now told him his prosecution would now be reviewed by a court, he said.
