Ms. Ma’edeh Ghaderi, an Iranian lawyer, member of the Iranian Bar Association, wife of Green Movement activist Ali Parandian and reportedly a Kurdish rights activist, was arrested in the North-Eastern city of Mashhad on March 3, 2011 as she was trying to obtain information about her imprisoned husband. She has reportedly remained detained since then, but no information could be obtained as to whether charges were brought against her. Her husband, Mr. Ali Parandian, had been arrested by Intelligence officials in Mashhad in January 2011.

FIDH and LDDHI denounce the arbitrary arrest of Ms. Ghaderi, and urges the Iranian authorities to immediately release her, and put an end to any kind of harassment against her.
