IRAN: Human Rights Lawyer Faces 34 Years in Prison - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International, USA, March 4, 2019.

Prominent detained Iranian human rights lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, faces up to 34 years in prison and 148 lashes, after two grossly unfair trials. The charges against her stem solely from her peaceful human rights work, including her defence of women protesting Iran’s abusive forced hijab (veiling) laws, and her outspoken opposition to the death penalty.
