11:19 - 3 December 2019

 Kurdpa Agency: A detained member of the Nojin Socio-cultural Association was released after six months on 700 million Tomans bail. 

 According to a report received by the Kurdistan Press Agency on Monday, December 2nd, Zahra Mohammadi, a Kurdish language teacher and member of the Nojin Socio-cultural Association, was released temporarily on bail of 700 million Tomans. 

 Zahra Mohammadi was detained by the Ministry of Intelligence agents at her home this year. She was held in solitary confinement until May 31st, after which she was transferred to Sanandaj Prison and her whereabouts was reported to her family. Zahra Mohammadi subsequently, during a meeting with her family members, said that she had been under pressure during her eight days in solitary confinement to be forced to make "confessions".

 On Wednesday, September 18th, this Kurdish activist was transferred to the first branch of the Revolutionary Court in Sanandaj for trail without further notice to his lawyers and his family, which was subsequently postponed.

 Web sites affiliated with the Iranian government's security organizations accuse Zahra Mohammadi of "membership in one of the Kurdish opposition's Kurdish parties."

 In response to allegations made against Zahra Mohammadi, the Nojin Socio-cultural Association stated: "Zahra Mohammadi is under duress for forced confessions while she has no affiliation with the party or political currents and her only crime is teaching Kurdish language to children.  "

 Not long ago, Amnesty International called the arrest of Zahra Mohammadi "arbitrary" and demanded his immediate and unconditional release.
