Parvin Tajik, sister of detained Iranian journalist, Abdolreza
Tajik was interrogated today at Evin Prison Court for discussing his brother's
situation with the media.
Kaleme website reports that Parvin Tajik was summoned by Evin Court and charged
with "activities against national security, disturbing public perception and
propaganda against the regime."
The report goes on to add that the interrogator has told Parvin Tajik that her
charges are clear because she gave interviews to foreign media regarding the
situation of his brother in prison.
Abdolreza Tajik was arrested for the third time this year last June. Once in a
meeting with his sister, he had informed his sister that he "had been
dishonoured" by prison authorities, words that human rights groups interpreted
as an admission of being sexually assaulted in prison.
In the same vein, Zahra Mojarradi, wife of detained secretary general of the
reformist party, Islamic Iran Participation Front, was summoned to the
prosecutor's office yesterday.
Kaleme reports that Mojarradi has to report to the prosecutor's office tomorrow
in order to "offer explanation for a number of issues."
Mojarradi's husband, Mohsen Mirdamadi was arrested in the post-election protests
to the controversial victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran's 2009 presidential
elections and was released after 270 days in prison on a heavy bail.
However, a recent critical letter he wrote with seven other of his peers to
offer evidence of irregular interference in the elections led to his recall back
to Evin Prison.
