Last week Saturday 29th of August 2010 the security forces entered her office and her home at the same time and raided her personal files and belongings and handed a notice of attending a court hearing session based in the notorious Evin prison. Hence Nasrin Sotoudeh attended the court hearing with her lawyer Nasim Ghanvi, which elaborated that, when in the court, Nasim Ghanvi was not allowed to represent her client and was also told that she was not allowed to remain during questioning, hence Nasrin Sotoudeh went to court hearing on her own, as I have no news from her since then.

Reza Khandan, Nasrin’s husband stated that “after hours of waiting for Nasrin I am trying to find out what is happening with Nasrin “I have been told that it not certain whether a warrant for her arrest has been issued or not ” Narins lawyer Nasim Ghavni stated that at such times according to the law the court can only issue whether she will be arrested or released on bail” as it stands nothing is certain of this situation. Nasim Ghavni elaborates that they will return tomorrow morning to peruse the matter and find out what the outcome is from the court”.
