Iran: orders

Abdolfattah Soltani a human rights activist and lawyer for political prisoners has received the Nuremburg Human Rights Award.
In 2002 Soltani, Shirin Abadi and other Human Rights lawyers established the “Society for Defending Human Rights”.
Mr. Soltani has worked on several famous cases, such as the murder of Zahra Kazemi and Akbar Ganji’s allegations.

Ali Saremi,Eyed Sohur Nabavi-Chashemi, Mohammad Ali-Mansuri, Misagh Yazdan Nezhad, Mohammad Hassan Falahiye Zadeh, political prisoners of Ward 350 of Evin prison, have made a statement, concerning the fact that they have not been allowed to receive their families for three weeks.
The head of Ward 350 said they could receive visits from their family,which he had said is an advantage of being placed in this ward, but under the condition that they attend compulsory public prayers. They did not accept this unlawful order and got no visits.
They hope human rights organizations in and outside Iran and centers for prisoners’ rights will help to obtain fundamental rights to receive familyvisits.

Esmail Jafari, journalist, blogger and photographer from Bushehr has been sentenced to five months in prison.In april, he and two collegues were arrested while in front of Bushehr’s Governor’s Office during coverage of the workers’ strike of a shipping manufacturing company, Iran Sadra,.
All three were released later but a few hours later Jafari's house was searched, documents, a computer and CD's were confiscated and Jafari arrested.
A few weeks later he was released after paying bail and charged with propagation against the state.

Iranian-American student Esha Momeni still is unable to leave Iran.
Reports about this are contradictory.
Her university professor asks herself whether Esha Momeni is capable to finish her thesis, because she has not submitted any of the work and it is not known when she returns.

In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.

Children are being hanged to death.
A child will be hanged to death.
