Hamideh Nabavi-Chashemi, 45 is arrested by securityagents and a computer and other related equipment in her house were confiscated.
Her child, a toddler, was taken to her store, where the child was left with her employee and security guards stated that Mrs. Nabavi-Chashemi will be returned in the next two days and that no one should talk about the incident.
Familymembers think that her arrest is related to her participation in last month’s ceremonies held in Khavaran.
She had received a five-year suspended sentence for her participation in ceremonies held to commemorate Dr. Mosadegh.
She is a feminist activist and was cooperating with local organizations in the areas of women’s rights.
