Nasrin Sotoudeh human rights lawyer in Iran, sentenced to prison for 38 years and 148 lashes

Nasrin Sotoudeh — a prominent human rights lawyer in Iran, who was facing criminal charges for defending women’s rights — has been sentenced to a prison term totaling 38 years and 148 lashes
This is the harshest sentence recorded against a human rights defender in Iran in recent years, suggesting that the authorities are stepping up their repression. This sentence keeps Nasrin separated from her husband and two children — and prevents her from being able to carry out her important work as a human rights lawyer.

Nasrin has dedicated her life to defending human rights! Now it’s time for us to stand up for her. Please speak up for Nasrin now and add your name.
