No news on Mourning Mother abducted 4 weeks ago by security forces

According to reports, Farzaneh Zinali, a supporter of the Mourning Mothers was abducted by security forces more than four weeks ago and there is no information on her whereabouts and condition.
Zinali, 53, is married with two children and supports the Mourning Mothers. On January 9, 2009 after she left her home and on her way to join the protest of Mourning Mothers in Laleh Park, she was attacked and abducted by intelligence agents. From that time on, there has been no information on her condition and even where she is being detained.
Her family constantly goes to the Revolutionary Court and Evin Prison to pursue her condition and the location of her detention but (officials) refrain from answering their questions. They only told this family once that she is in a detention center near Qom but did not give them the exact address of the prison.
This family is under pressure and threats by intelligence agents that if they tell human rights activists and the media that Mrs. Zinali has been arrested and that they have no information on her whereabouts, Mrs. Zinali and her family will have to face the consequences.
