Shirin Ebadi speaks for Nasrin Sotoudeh – Amnesty International .

” my colleague Nasrin Sotoudeh was the lawyer that so many of us human rights defenders in Iran called when our own government harassed us or put one of us, or a family member, in jail.

Sadly, it is now Nasrin who is in jail.

Her crime?

The government’s accusations against her include acting contrary to ‘national security’, ‘propaganda against the state’ and ‘membership’ in the Defender of Human Rights Centre, an organisation I founded in 2001. The government has also accused her of failing to wear a hijab, the traditional Islamic covering for women. For just a few of these trumped up charges she was sentenced  and is banned from practising.”
