Iran arrests not only dissidents but also their relatives

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Activists and their relatives have been arrested in Iran for the purpose to suppress the opposition. Sister of Shirin Ebadi, the winner of Nobel Peace Prize and human rights campaigner, is said to be among the arrested. Though Ms. Ebadi strongly denies that her sister has any connection to the dissidents, saying this arrest is just an attempt of Iranian authorities to silence her and to stop from further human rights work.
