The Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran reported on November 5, 2014 that Narges Mohammadi, deputy chair and spokeswoman of this entity, had been summoned to the second branch of interrogation in Tehran’s Evin Prison.
Ms. Mohammadi must report to branch 2 of Evin Prison’s Public Prosecutor office on the morning of Saturday, November 9.
On October 30, 2014 at a ceremony marking the second anniversary of the murder of the blogger, Sattar Beheshti, Narges Mohammadi made the following remarks in reference to his ‘torture’ while in detention: “How is it that today in the Parliament, members have raised a bill on ‘Promoting Virtue & Prohibiting Vice”, yet it has been two years that his mother cries at this grave and shouts Sattar, Sattar? Why haven’t we heard anything from the agents ‘prohibiting of vice’?”…
Ms. Mohammadi had also participated in a rally outside the Iranian regime’s Parliament, in Tehran on October 22 along with a number of other civil activists protesting the acid attacks in Isfahan.
After meeting with former EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, Narges Mohammadi had received warnings on April 30, 2014 banning her from leaving the country.
(Catherine Ashton in her trip to Iran on March 8, 2014, marking Women’s Day, met with women rights activists including Narges Mohammadi and Gohar Eshghi – mother of Sattar Beheshti – at the Austrian Embassy in Tehran.)
In 2011 Narges Mohammadi was first condemned to 11 years prison on charges of ‘propaganda against the state’ and ‘membership in a human rights activist center’. This ruling was reduced to six years in jail in March 2012.
Ms. Mohammadi was transferred to Evin Prison and then Zanjan Prison in 2012 to serve her time. However, due to her illness she was freed on a 6 billion rial bail in July 2012.
