Nasrin Sotoudeh is a human rights lawyer in Iran. She has represented imprisoned Iranian opposition activists and politicians following the disputed June 2009 Iranian presidential elections as well as prisoners sentenced to death for crimes committed when they were minors.
Mrs. Sotoudeh was arrested in September 2010 on charges of spreading propaganda and conspiring to harm state security and was imprisoned in solitary confinement in Evin Prison. In January 2011, Iranian authorities sentenced Sotoudeh to 11 years in prison, in addition to barring her from practicing law and from leaving the country for 20 years. An appeals court later reduced Sotoudeh's prison sentence to six years, and her ban from working as a lawyer to ten years.
Mrs. Sotoudeh was released on 18 September 2013 along with ten other political prisoners.
Mrs. Sotoudeh was arrested again on June 13, 2018 and taken to Evin Prison.
Mrs. Sotoudeh had defended the women who had protested against wearing the Islamic veil.
Mrs. Sotoudeh won the prestigious Sakharov rights prize of the European Parliament in 2012 for her work as a human rights lawyer in Iran.
Mrs. Sotoudeh is an innocent woman and must be released immediately.
