Intelligence forces in Abadan, southwestern Iran, arrested a teenage girl.
Ma’edeh Shaabani Nejad, 15, was arrested at her high school and taken to the Department of Intelligence on October 18, 2017, after her residence was encircled and thoroughly searched by agents of the Intelligence Department of Abadan. Ma’edeh is a high school freshman.
She had been summoned the day before by Abadan’s Intelligence HQ 114 and detained from 10 am to 4 pm.
Ma’edeh’s father is a dissident poet and a member of the Al-Hawar Cultural Institute, who lives in exile. The reason for the girl’s arrest remains unclear.
