We are aware of reports that Mrs Mohammadi is suffering from a serious health condition requiring regular medical treatment not available in prison.

Mrs Mohammadi's case demonstrates Iran's appalling record when it comes to freedom of expression and we call on Iran to cease the harassment and detention of human rights defenders in the country.
