Iran: insight, senseless

Friday September 3 the Times made an apology because the Times-uk had printed a photograph of a unveiled woman, identified as Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiari. This photograph was of another woman, named Susan Hejrat, an Iranian expat, living in Sweden.
Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiari was punished for this by the authorities with 99 lashes.

Mehrnews wrote last week that Iran’s ambassador to the Netherlands said that recently over 100 Dutch businessmen of Netherlands Iranian Business Association (NIBA) objected to the economic sanctions.
Tehran Times wrote September 4 that last Wednesday the NIBA organized a meeting where Dutch businessmen were informed about the new EU-sanctions imposed on Iran.
The NIBA was concerned that these sanctions would do more harm to Dutch trade and business than to Iran.
Nevertheless they understood the necessity to impose these sanctions as Iran violates international protocols on human rights and nuclear policies.

Humanrights lawyer Nasrine Sotoudeh is Saturday arrested in Tehran.
Her husband confirmed this to Babylon and Beyond.
Further information about her whereabouts are unknown.
