Eurasia Review reports that Rojin Mohammadi has been arrested. Mohammadi is a medical student, currently studying at the University of Manila in the Philippines. The Human Rights Reporters Committee reported that she was arrested initially on November 14 when she returned to the country to visit her family, but was released 24 hours later.
She was rearrested yesterday in her home province of Kermanshah.
According to the Green Voice of Freedom blog:
"Five days later, security forces raided her father's home in Kermanshah province in an attempt to detain her, however she was absent at the time. Authorities summoned Mohammadi...for questioning on 21 November and after three days of interrogation, they finally transferred her to Evin prison on Wednesday."
Evin prison is notorious for its brutality and dreadful conditions. Political prisoners are mixed with hardened criminals. It was in Evin that Omid Reza Misayafi became the first blogger to die in custody.
The charges against Mohammadi are unknown.
