Nasim Soltan Beigi granted furlough on bail for the Nowruz holidays

Committee of Human Rights Reporters – On Monday March 18, journalist and former student activist Nasim Soltan Beigi was granted furlough and released from prison on bail.

According to CHRR, Nasim Soltan Beigi who has had 2 prior arrests, has worked at several media outlets including Shargh and Arman. On November 30, 2010, Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court handed this student activist and journalist a 6-year prison sentence; 3 years on the charge of “acting against national security,” one year for “propaganda against the regime,” and a 2-year suspended term stemming from a prior arrest in 2006. Soltan Beigi appealed this ruling and it was sent to the Appeals Court.

Nasim Soltan Beigi was a leftist student who was among students arrested in a widespread crackdown on student activists in November 2007. She spent 56 days behind bars in ward 209 of Evin prison before being released on bail. She had previously been arrested on June 12, 2006 at a rally of women activists and at that time was handed a 2-year suspended prison sentence.
