The last time I wrote about Lady Nasrine Sotoudeh the imprisoned human rights attorney in Iran was back on September the 13th. But that does not by any stretch of the imagination mean out of sight out of mind.
There is good news and there is bad news about her. First the great news, she is alive. The bad news is she lost her father while in captivity and was not allowed to attend his funeral. And that after twelve days on hunger strike; she is under mental pressure and “threat”.
Her husband, Mr. Reza Khandan, along with their attorney have been put on notice to not publicize her case or talk to journalists in the free world. Nevertheless he has been talking and the latest is the first and only phone call from her since her incarceration well over a month ago.
In the three second call, yes three seconds, before the line went dead, Lady Nasrine got to say the word “threat” to her husband.
The Islamist Rapists and their gofers worldwide need to know their crimes are being catalogued by at least three centers and when the time comes, and it will come, they will be held accountable for every single one of them.
What they need to do is to set Lady Nasrin and her colleagues free. These attorneys will be the ones who will be defending the Islamist Rapists; it is unwise of them to deny themselves dedicated legal counsel.
