No news on jailed mourning mothers

According to reports, Akram Neqabi (Mother Zinali) and Jila Mahdavian (Mother Tarmasi) are jailed in cellblock 209 in Evin Prison and there is no news on the state of their legal cases and their charges. Their families have not been allowed to visit them in prison as yet. They were both arrested with their daughters on October 9. Their daughters were released after some time.

They have been charged with acting against national security and having contacts with dissident groups. They are only allowed to call their families once every week and inform them of their health so that their families do not worry. But they are not allowed to talk about their charges. Relevant judicial officials have not allowed these mothers to see their families in prison. (Center in Defense of those Slain and Detained – Nov. 24, 2010)
