A member of women’s national futsal team of Iran sought refuge with Switzerland.
A famous league player in Iran, Shiva Amini, 28, had been set aside from the national team for removing her veil while on vacation in Switzerland. She had posted pictures of herself in the social networks showing her playing football without covering her hair.
Iran’s Football Federation removed her from the national team and deprived her of playing in the leagues and from coaching. Ms. Amini is presently in a camp in Switzerland. (The state-run ROKNA news agency – December 12, 2017)
