May 20 jailed humanrights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh is summoned to appear in court again.
Her husband told ICHRI that the court has called on the Bar Association to suspend or annul her legal licence.
The problem will be that Sotoudeh's lawyer, Abdolfattah Soltani is in prison also. Last year he was sentenced to 18 years in jail, 20 years of exile and a ban on practicing law.
In the past year, many human rights lawyer have been the target of government persecution. The government has come to regard their activities as adverse propaganda against the regime and a threat to national security.
