International call to release Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh

NCRI – In a suppressive and criminal decision, Mrs. Nasrin Sotoudeh, lawyer of political prisoners in Iran, has been sentenced to 11 years of imprisonment, 20 year ban on leaving the country, and 20 year ban on practicing law. She was charged with “collaborating against state security, propaganda against the establishment, and not observing hejab (the regime’s dress code) while delivering speech.”

Mrs. Sotoudeh, mother of two children of 3 and 10 years of age, has been held in solitary confinements in Ward 209 of Tehran’s Evin Prison since her arrest on September 5, 2010.

The Iranian Resistance calls on the UN Security Council, High Commissioner for Human Rights, special rapporteurs on arbitrary arrests and women, all human rights and women’s rights organizations, bar associations and jurists across the world to take urgent measures to get Mrs. Sotoudeh and other political prisoners released.
