Nasrin Sotoudeh, the jailed Iranian human rights lawyer who had been granted a furlough, was summoned back to Evin Prison on Sunday July 7. Sotoudeh's husband, Reza Khandan, reports that his wife was given a four-day leave, which was later extended another 10 days, but she was finally summoned back to prison.

The report indicates that Sotoudeh had written twice to the prosecutor's office to renew her furlough, but her requests were turned down.

Khandan reports that in view of the election and the prospect of change in the country, they were hoping that Sotoudeh would be given an extended leave, which apparently has not been the case.
