The Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) reports that Mohammadi’s family arrived at the Evin Prison court on the scheduled date, only to be told that she had not been transferred to court and the hearing was adjourned for no reported reason.

Mohammadi’s husband Taghi Rahmani, who is currently in exile, says the authorities are trying to retry Mohammadi for the charge of assembly and collusion against national security and disturbance of public minds because of her human rights activities.

Mohammadi is a prominent human rights activist in Iran and a member of the outlawed Centre for Defenders of Human Rights. She was arrested at her home in May to serve out a six-year sentence. Before that she had been released from prison for medical reasons.
