Researcher and women’s rights activist Safieh Gharebaghi was arrested on Monday July 17, 2017 by the intelligence agents in the city of Zanjan, north-western Iran.
“A few hours after the arrest, three agents came for inspection the house and Safieh was with them. They inspected the house and confiscated a laptop, some notebooks, books and personal documents. I could talk to Safieh for a while. She said that she has been charged with “distorting public opinion,” “propaganda against the establishment,” and “spreading lies”. I have no further news of her,” Safieh Gharebaghi’s husband wrote on his facebook account.
