According to Amnesty International Nasrin Sotoudeh a prominent Iranian human rights lawyer was arrested. In an article titled; Iran: ‘Vindictive’ arrest of prominent human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh, Amnesty International says:
The arrest of Nasrin Sotoudeh, a prominent Iranian human rights lawyer, is an outrageous attack on a brave and prolific human rights defender.
Also, Philip Luther, Research and Advocacy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International, said:
“Nasrin Sotoudeh has dedicated her life to fighting for human rights in Iran. She has won international awards but has also paid a high price for her courage, spending three years in jail. Her arrest today is the latest example of the Iranian authorities’ vindictive attempts to stop her from carrying out her important work as a lawyer.
“We call on the Iranian authorities to release Nasrin Sotoudeh immediately and unconditionally. Any action short of this must be unreservedly condemned by the international community.”
