Fears Iranian raids will see Nobel winner jailed

It is our great fear that Dr. Ebadi may be arrested in the next 24 to 48 hours as part of a systematic campaign by the government of Iran to bring an end to her work, and to the work of all human rights activists in the country of Iran,” 1997 Nobel Peace Prize winner Jody Williams wrote in a letter to Navanethem Pillay, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights.  “There is now grave danger to both Dr. Ebadi, who fears an imminent arrest, and to her many human rights clients, whose basic human rights and lawyer/client privileges have been compromised by this seizure of their confidential files,” Williams wrote. “Dr. Ebadi is deeply concerned that the lives of many dozens of people are now in jeopardy as a result of yesterday’s illegal raid.”
