Thirty scholars and researchers at the University of Tehran have called for the release of detained reporter Marzieh Amiri in a letter addressing Minister of Science, Research and Technology Mansour Gholami.

Marzieh Amiri

Amiri, a reporter for the reformist Shargh newspaper and student at the university, has been in Evin Prison's Ward 209 under the control of the Intelligence Ministry since she was arrested while covering a Labor Day protest in Tehran on May 1, 2019.

Following is the Center for Human Rights in Iran's (CHRI) translation of the letter.


Ms. Marzieh Amiri, a graduate student at the University of Tehran's College of Social Studies, was among those arrested at a lawful rally in front of Parliament on the occasion of International Labor Day.

At the time this letter was written, she had been in detention for more than 46 days.

We, a group of academics at the University of Tehran's College of Social Studies, in light of upcoming end-of-term finals exams, call for transparency in the judicial process regarding her case and taking steps toward facilitating this student's freedom in order to enable her to submit her [academic] proposal by the deadline and take care of administrative matters.
