Azarpeyk was arrested 65 days ago. Her mother reports that she managed to have brief visit with her daughter last week and found her feverish and suffering from severe back pain.

Akram Mohammadi insisted that her daughter has committed no violations and all activities have been within the framework of her responsibilities as a journalist.

Azarpeyk was working for Tejarat weekly magazine at the time of her arrest.
