Azima's lawyer, Mohammad-Hossein Aghasi, told RFE/RL by phone from Tehran on June 10 that the Iranian Information Ministry declined the latest request to return her passport, which was confiscated five months ago, and will refer the matter to the Judiciary.

Aghasi said it could take months for the first court session to convene. Azima has been prevented by Iranian authorities from leaving Iran since January.
