NCRI WOMEN'S COMMITTEE

Works extensively with Iranian women outside the country and maintains a permanent contact with women inside Iran. The Women’s Committee is actively involved with many women's rights organizations and NGO's and the Iranian diaspora. The committee is a major source of much of the information received from inside Iran with regards to women. Attending UN Human Rights Commission meetings and other international or regional conferences on women’s issues, and engaging in a relentless battle against the Iranian regime's misogyny are part of the activities of members and associates of the committee.

Negar Haeri, jurist and former political prisoner of Gharchak Varamin Prison, was summoned to Evin Prison’s prosecutor office and arrested after interrogation and threats by the agents. The henchmen transferred her to ward 209 belonging to the Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence branch.

Haeri had been arrested three times before, spending 8 months in the notorious Gharchak Varamin Prison the last time. She was summoned and threatened many times for providing free advice to families of both political prisoners and those executed.

Her father, Mashallah Haeri, was arrested following the 2009 popular uprisings on charges of supporting the PMOI. He has been in Rajaie Shahr Prison ever since.
