Manizheh Nasrollahi released from prison

Iran Green Voice, July 26, 2013

Manizheh Nasrollahi (منیژه نصراللهی), a 60-year-old Bahai from Semnan who has been serving a sentence of three years in Evin prison, was released on July 26, at the end of her sentence. She was arrested during a raid on her house on June 17, 2009, and taken to Semnan prison, where she was held for about 6 weeks before being released on bail. She was initially sentenced to three and a half years [or three years and 8 months: reports vary], on charges of propaganda against the regime and membership of the Bahai community. This was reduced to three years by the review court. She began her sentence in Semnan prison on February 27, 2010, and was transferred to Evin prison in Tehran on March 11, 2010. While she was in prison in Tehran, her aged husband had to travel back and forth to meet her and take care of administrative matters. Since she was held for about six weeks before her trial, and was imprisoned from March 2010 to July 2013 (inclusive) she has in fact served 3 years and six and a half months in prison [thanks to Alison Marshall for this observation~ Sen]
