Two months after the arrest of Shahin Fazli, this student activist is still kept in a state of limbo in prison.
He has been charged with cooperating with groups outside of the country, spreading propaganda against the government, disrupting public order and instigating public opinion. He has not accepted any of the charges in his interrogations. According to those close to him, he has only been able to visit with his family once and twice with his lawyer in this time. This civil rights activist and film critic was arrested in his home in Tabriz in February. Despite the expiration of his temporary detention order, a bail order has still not been issued for him.
