Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Officials from the Shiraz Ministry of Intelligence blocked the brother of imprisoned activist Jamile Karimi from visitation with her on Tuesday April 16th.
According to CHRR, Jamile Karimi was held in custody incommunicado for one week, after which the office of the Prosecutor coordinated a visitation with her brother. However due to the opposition of the Ministry of Intelligence, the ordered visitation did not take place.
Jamile Karimi, member of the Participation Front (Jebheye Mosharekat) political party, is a reformist political activist who served in Fars province. She is also the principal of Maeraj Girls’ School. When she was arrested on Wednesday April 10th, her personal items were confiscated and she was transferred to No 100 at the detention center of the Shiraz Ministry of Intelligence headquarters.
