Tehran’s Prosecutor refused to release Ms. Shahnaz Akmali on bail bond.
Anti-death penalty and human rights activist, Shahnaz Akmali was arrested by plainclothes agents on Wednesday, January 25, 2017. She called home on January 26, and informed them that a 100-million-touman bail had been issued for her.
Ms. Akmali’s family went to the Prosecutor’s Office on Saturday, January 28, to deposit her bail bond and secure her release. The staff of the Prosecutor’s Office, however, told them that no bail had been issued for Ms. Akmali and she has to remain in prison.
Ms. Akmali lost her son, Mostafa Karim Beigi in the 2009 uprising.
