International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran

A source close to Mahsa Jazini told International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that Jazini is in detention at the Dastgerd Prison of Isfahan for the past 15 days. Mahsa Jazini,a women’s rights activist and a journalist with Iran Newspaper in Isfahan, was arrested on January 7, 2010 at her home. The source said that despite repeated visit by her attorney, Ali Amani, to Baharestan Judiciary Branch, no clear information has been provided about her situation. Her charges are “actions against national security,” “cooperation with foreign media,” and other similar cliched charges. According to sources close to this women’s rights activist, officers who arrested Mahsa Jazini and took her personal items away announced her crime as “being a feminist.”
