FeministSchool: Some Iranian women’s rights activists gathered in front of Tehran Prosecutor to present a letter to prosecutors to raise concern about Nasrin Sotoudeh’s conditions. They had written the letter about the dire situation of Nasrin sotoudeh, who has been on hunger strike for more than 45 days.

The letter was addressed to the Prosecutor General of Tehran, Jafari-dolatabadi. They declared by the letter, their support of the demands of Nasrin Sotoudeh and demanded that she be quickly transferred to a well equipped hospital as her situation is critical. Unfortunately Jafari - dolatabadi, the Prosecutor General ot Tehreh, didn’t accept them.

Nasrin Sotoudeh, human rights lawyer, had been on hunger strike since October 17 2012, to protest to a travel ban placed on her 12 year old daughter and to the violation of the rights of her family members.

Today Reza Khandan, Nasrin’s husband, said about her condition :«Nasrin’s friends in prison raised their concerns about her deteriorating health condition. She is not willing to compromise mainly because she believes if the government does not accept to guarantee the freedom and security of her daughter, it means they have had much dreadful plans for future for her family and herself."

In 2011 a Revolutionary Court sentenced Sotoudeh to six years and a 10-year ban on travel and practicing law, after her conviction on charges of “acting against the national security†and “propaganda against the system.â€
