Student Council of Defense of Human Rights in Kurdistan: Even though Mr. Shabnam Madadzadeh has been granted a 50 million Toman bail, Judge Hadad refuses to release her.

On May 27th 2009, even though all conditions for Ms. Madadzadeh’s bail had been met and the 50 millio Toman bail had been turned into court authorities, Judge Hadad refused to grant her release.

According to Ms. Madadzadeh’s lawyer Judge Hadad has charged her with “ Fighting against the Regime” and “propaganda against the Regime”. Judge Hadad is well known for his mistreatment of student activists.

In the past few weeks Judge Hadad convicted numerous “Amir Kabir” University students on charges of “involvement with opposition groups outside the country”, “organizing events against the upcoming election” and “drinking alcohol”.

It must be noted that Ms. Madadzadeh and her brother have been in pre-trial custody in the Evin Prison since February 20th. Last week they were both allowed a one hour visitation with their family, where they informed their family that their interrogation had been completed and they had been transferred to the common ward in Evin Prison. Their families are extremely concerned about their health and well being.

Ms. Madadzadeh is a student in Teachers Training Collage in Tehran and also an executive in student organization “Tahkime Vahdat”. Her brother Mr. Farzad Madadzadeh is a taxi driver in the city of Karaj.
