Woman activist “in war against God”

There is a growing concern that Shiva Nazar Ahari, a jailed human rights activist, blogger, and editor of the Committee of Human Rights Reporters website in Iran, may be charged with (waging war against God/enmity against God) in an upcoming trial.

In Iran, this can carry a death sentence.

Nazar Ahari was arrested on 14 June 2009 at her office. After spending 102 days in detention, she was released on 23 September 2009 on $200,000 bail. She spent 33 days of her detention in solitary confinement. She was arrested for the second time on 20 December 2009, and has remained in prison without furlough and without any explanation from authorities about the reasons for her imprisonment.

The second session of her trial is said to be scheduled for 4 September 2010.
