Nous, liées par le réseau Femmes sous lois Musulmanes, sommes profondément préoccupées par l’arrestation de Madame Mahboobeh Abbasgholizadeh survenue le 1er novembre 2004 sur les ordres du procureur général de Téhéran, Mr Saeid Mortazavi (qui avait ordonne l’arrestation de la journaliste canadienne decedee en prison).
WLUML is deeply concerned about the arrest of Ms. Mahboobeh Abbasgholizadeh on November 1, 2004 on the orders of Tehran's General Prosecutor, Saeid Mortazavi (who ordered the arrest of the Canadian woman journalist who died in prison).
The hard-liners who won Iran's parliamentary elections last February have focused on women's rights in their efforts to reverse some of the reforms carried out under the moderate president, Mohammad Khatami.
Iran's new parliament, sworn in two weeks ago, has nine female legislators, down from 13 in the previous body. Women throughout the country are watching this mix of mostly conservative legislators' approach to women's rights.
