  • Shadi Aadr has been released!
couple of hours ago Shadi Sadr was released after 11 days in Evin prison. Despite the authorities telling her family she was going to be released at 6 p.m., she got home a couple of hours the time of her arrival, her family were planning a welcoming party for her, which made them all really happy and excited.
it seems she was released a little earlier, to avoid crowding in front of Evin prison by her friends and family.


  • National security commissioner and foreign affairs representative states, Tehran's Parliament have reported of 140 people being released from Evin prison and stated only 150 remain imprisoned.
In an an interview with Mehr online newspaper's reporter Doctor Kazem Jalali reported from yesterday's meeting that was specifically put together for recent arrests and stated: " although in this meeting we have been told to encounter recent prisoners with Islamic laws, about 140 of them are being released today."

He also made a point of 150 of them remaining in prison and said: "in regards to prosecutors' statement, and the evidence in hand, they were armed of and have destroyed public and personal properties around town.he also stated, we are hoping to get their sentences in the near future.

he said 50 of these people are political prisoner and some are from different partitions against IRI, and other foreign prisoners are proven to have a hand in recent riots.


  • Kazem Jalali, stated the ones remained in prison are anti-Islamic, and have had a major role in recent riots. and also stated they have destroyed public properties and have played a role in riots and recent scares.
Ahmad Khatami, had asked the authorities to "encounter with leaders of riots, which have been planned by USA and Israel."

The worrisome new we have heard about him and not being able to contact him has his family extremely worried.
By signing this statement we all ask the authorities to stop making false cases against lawyer and many writers who have peacefully defended their client in regards to finding him in possession of handgun and drug, because this is against humanity.
On the other hand Shadi Sadr has also been brutally attacked and arrested by plain clothes and we have no news as for her current condition.

Mahboobeh, who had spent 2 weeks in this ward says the solitary area consists of several small rooms, with metal doors which no one knew what's going on behind, the bathrooms were also in the area so during that time the prisoner would not even get to go out for anything. but there is a small garden in the begging of it that holds the only clean water within ward 209. with all that said it seems that all others that are not even in solitary would be in a bad condition due to the size of their cells, not having clean air and not even being able to get clean water.
