Latest News on Bahareh Hedayat and other Imprisoned Students

Judge Moghiseh: If Bahareh Hedayat is not to be in prison, then who should be instead?

May 27, 2010

Judge Moghiseh believes that Bahareh Hedayat deserves to be in prison more than anyone else. The following is the foundation of his argument.

Amin Ahmadian, Bahareh Hedayat’s husband, said in an interview with Rooz regarding his wife’s status, “Overall, she is well. She is detained in a public cell with 24 other prisoners and is able to call home. She is with Hengameh Shahidi, Badrolsadat Mofidi, Mahdieh Golroo, Atefeh Nabavi, Mahboubeh Karami, Alieh Eghdamdoost, Masoomeh Yavari, Zahra Jabari, Shabnam Madadzadeh, and others.”

Ahmadian noted that Hedayat was denied the possibility of parole because she is considered a threat to national security. Hedayat’s family was told that one of the people in charge of her file argued against her release.

Judge Moghiseh said to Hedayat’s family, “Why would we release Bahareh? If we were to do that, then who would we keep detained in prison?”

Ahmadian is hoping that after enduring five months in prison, his wife will be permitted for release.
