Shiva Nazarahari returned to prison

Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Shiva Nazarahari, human rights activist, founder and former head of Committee of Human Rights Reporters, returned to Evin prison a few hours ago.

According to CHRR, Shiva Nazarahari who was granted furlough on March 12th after enduring 184 days behind bars, returned to prison on Saturday April 13th to serve the remainder of her prison term.

On December 20, 2009, Shiva was arrested while she was on a bus with other activists intending to attend the funeral of the late dissident cleric Ayatollah Montazeri. After facing harsh interrogations while in detention, Shiva Nazarahari was handed a 4-year prison sentence and 74 lashes on the charges of “moharebeh” (enmity with God), “propaganda against the regime,” and “illegal gathering with the intent of disturbing national security.” She turned herself in at Evin prison to serve her prison sentence on September 8, 2012.
