In an interview with the news agency, Reporters and Human Rights Activists of Iran on 12 June 2010, Shiva Nazar Ahari's lawyer, Mohammad Sharif, said: "After two different cases brought against Nazar Ahari were integrated, the [new date for the court] session has not yet been declared to us." Sharif announced that his client had been officially accused of 'Moharebeh' (enmity against God), and acts against national security through collective action and participation in the demonstrations. Such charges attract very severe sentences under Iran's Penal Code and Nazar Ahari and could face the death penalty. Please continue to write to the Iranian authorities calling for Iran to abide by its commitments under international laws and its own constitution.


Shortly after the disputed presidential elections on 12 June 2009, Shiva Nazar Ahari, a young human rights activist and a member of the Committee of Human Rights Reporters (CHRR), was arrested and kept for months in solitary confinement in a cage-like cell so small that she could barely move her limbs and subjected to extreme methods of interrogation. After spending more than 100 days in prison, she was released on a $200,000 bail in September 2009. Nazar Ahari, who had re-started her activism immediately upon her release from prison, was arrested once more on 20 December 2009 along with other members of CHRR when a bus taking several political and civil activists to Ayatollah Montazeri’s funeral in Qom was stopped by security forces in Tehran’s Enghelab Square. The 3rd Branch of Evin Court informed Nazar Ahari of two charges. One is ‘creating public anxiety through writing on CHRR’s website and other sites'. Her second charge is ‘acts against national security through participation in gatherings on 4 November 2009 and 7 December 2009 gatherings.’ Like many other members of CHRR,she was also charged as "Mohareb" having been accused of affiliating with the dissident group PMOI/MKO She has denied these charges because she was not present at those gatherings.

May God have mercy upon dear Nazar Ahari and change the heart of the Iranian leaders to show her favour and kindness instead of harsh and cruel judgment. From sympathetic friends in Australia
