Change for Equality: Reza Khandan, Nasrin Sotoodeh’s husband, has been detained at Evin prison, after showing up at the prosecutor’s office in response to a summons he received last week. Following the sentencing of his wife, imprisoned lawyer and activist Nasrin Sotoodeh, to 11 years in prison and a 20 year ban from practicing law and travel outside the country, Khandan was summoned to court.
He responded on Sunday, January 16, 2011, to this summons by appearing in the special security branch of the Revolutionary courts in Evin prison. Khandan was detained after questioning, despite the fact that the Judge in charge of his case issued a bail order in the form of a third party guarantee in the amount of 50 Million Tomans (roughly $50,000). Nasrin Sotoodeh’s sister had volunteered to act as the third party guarantor for his release but the courts did not accept her as a suitable candidate for this purpose. Sotoodeh and Khandan’s family hope that they will be able to find an appropriate guarantor by tomorrow so that Reza Khandan will be released.
It should be noted that Nasrin Sotoodeh was arrested in September 4, 2010 and has been charged with acting against national security, collusion and spreading of propaganda against the state and membership in the Defense of Human Rights Center. She was sentenced to 11 years in prison and a 20 year ban on practicing law and travel. The sentence has been met with international outcry and her lawyers plan to appeal the court ruling. Sotoodeh and Khandan’s two small children now have both parents in prison.
