Iranian Human Rights Defender Narges Mohammadi Must Be Released

Narges Mohammadi was taken into custody on May 5, 2015, two days after her trial began. She has been charged with "spreading propaganda against the system" and "assembly and collusion against national security."

She is being persecuted because she interviewed in the media, expressed her opposition to the death penalty by founding the group Step by Step to Stop Death Penalty, has close connections to Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi who was forced into exile, and met on March 2014 with Catherine Ashton (then the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy). She spent three months in prison in 2012 but was released on medical furlough after suffering from seizures and temporary loss of vision.
