Iranian filmmaker Tahmineh Milani must appear in the Culture and Media Parquet in the next 72 hours, for publication of a screenplay named “Shahrzad, a woman of 1,001 nights”. This book was published under the permit of the Ministry of Culture and has undergone all legal steps for publication, according to Milani.
“The charge raised in this summon has been propaganda against the state. This screenplay is the epic story of a woman who resorts to wisdom, understanding and art to fight violence and bloodshed,” Milani said.
Milani had spent 8 days in Evin Prison 12 years ago for “acting against national security, acting against God, cooperation with dissident groups and distorting public opinion”.
