" 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.
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."Nobel Peace Laureat Shirin Ebadi speaks about Nasrin Sotoudeh, an Iranian lawyer jailed for defending human rights activists.
