Sotoudeh finally allowed brief visit by family

November 16, 2012

According to Iranian blogger Arseh Sevom writing today the young children of detained lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh, nominee of the 2012 MEA, were finally allowed to visit their mother in prison on Monday 12 November with security forces present. Referring to her mother’s health conditions as a result of the continuous hunger strike, Mehraveh said: “She has lost weight and is taken to the infirmary on occasion.”

Sotoudeh’s husband Reza Khandan wrote [in farsi]: “Today, right after he stepped out of the jail’s gate, Nima [their son] took away the kiss from his cheek and put it on mine saying that mom said keep this kiss and give it to daddy when you see him”. Two days before the visit, Khandan and his two children waited for three and a half hours to visit their wife and mother, but were denied access
