Amnesty International is very worried about a married couple in prison. Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee [pronounced Goal-row-k Ebra-himee Ear-a-ee] is on the left in the photo. Arash Sadeghi [A-rash Sa-de-ghee] is on the right.
They were arrested in September 2014 just for promoting human rights in Iran. So the main reason for Amnesty’s concern is that neither Golrokh nor Arash should be in prison.
After their arrests, they were threatened and beaten. Everyone has the right to be protected from harm.
Neither of them was allowed to have a lawyer’s help with their cases and their trial lasted just 15 minutes.
