Thursday 2 April 2009, by admin

International campaign for human rights in Iran:whilst ten women’s rights activists of twelve detainees have been released on bail , Khadijeh Moghadam and Mahboubeh Karami are still in Evin prison in custody. the twelve activists were detained as they were planning a Persian new year visits last week.

The ten activists were released after judiciary officials set bail for them in the amount of 50 million tomans ($50,000) that had to be posted by a government employee as a third-party guarantee.

The authorities refused to accept bail posted by Moghadam and Karami, without explanation. Those released have to report for interrogations on Sunday, 5 April. They have been charged with “disturbing public opinion†and “disruption of public order,†and a judicial case has been initiated based on these charges.

The Campaign calls on the Iranian authorities to immediately release Moghadam and Karami, noting that there is no legal justification for these detentions.
