She is at risk of torture or other ill-treatment.

Mansoureh Behkish has lost several members of her family who were executed in the 1980s; since then she has been an activist and has been detained several times before.
Mansoureh Behkish was among 33 women from the 'Mourning Mothers' group arrested during their weekly meeting in Laleh Park, Tehran, on 9 January 2010 and held for several days. On 17 March 2010, she was prevented from travelling to Italy to visit her children and her passport was confiscated. She remains banned from travel abroad.

ADditional Information
The 'Mourning Mothers' group was set up by women whose children have been killed, disappeared or detained in post-election violence in Iran since June 2009 but it quickly grew to include relatives of other victims of human rights violations and their supporters. The 'Mourning Mothers' meet in silence for an hour each Saturday near the place and time of the killing of protester Neda Agha-Soltan, who came to symbolize the brutal repression meted out by security forces after the disputed presidential election of 2009. Her death was shown in footage circulated around the world Mansoureh Behkish has not herself lost a child but lost several members of her family in the 1980s and is very involved in the movement.
Mansoureh Behkish, along with other women in the 'Mourning Mothers' group, was first seized during the group's weekly meeting in Laleh Park, Tehran on 5 December 2009. Members of the group were arrested again on 9 January 2010; several of them were beaten and 10 were taken to hospital (see: Iran's 'Mourning Mothers' must be released, 11 January 2010,
On 9 April 9 2011, Leyla Seyfollahi and Zhila Karamzadeh-Makvandi were sentenced in connection with their membership of the ‘Mourning Mothers’. They were arrested on 8 February 2010 and appeared before Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran in May 2010 and March 2011. Leyla Seyfollahi and Zhila Karamzadeh-Makvandi were sentenced to four years imprisonment for “founding an illegal organisation” and “acting against state security”. They remain free pending their appeal.
Between 1981 and 1988 Mansoureh Behkish lost six members of her family including a sister, four brothers and a brother-in-law. Starting in August 1988 and continuing until shortly before the tenth anniversary of the Islamic revolution in February 1989, the Iranian authorities carried out mass summary executions of political prisoners, known as the “prison massacre” – the largest numbers since those carried out in the first and second year after the Iranian revolution in 1979. In all between 4,500 and 5,000 prisoners are believed to have been killed, including women.
For the past few years, Mansoureh Behkish has participated in the commemoration of the victims of the 1988 mass executions, some of whom were buried in the Khavaran Cemetery in south Tehran. This event is held yearly by relatives of the dead on or about 29 August to mark the anniversary and demand justice for their loved ones. Hundreds of those summarily executed are buried in the cemetery, many of them in unmarked mass graves. Families of the victims have been under pressure from the Iranian authorities not to hold commemorations at the cemetery or in their homes. On 29 August 2008 Mansoureh Behkish was arrested and held in Evin Prison for three days and summoned several times that year.
Mansoureh Behkish is the main carer of her elderly mother.

U.N. rights investigator on Iran named ! What Ahmad Shaheed must know inorder not to be deceived or not to become victime of this corrupt regime.

This regime is so corrupt and are well aware of how to buy foreign or international delegates or envoys. This regime has been busy recently transfering the political prisoners from one location to another.IRAN WATCH CANADA is very concerned about this issue and willing to cooperate together with all other human rights advocate who monitor the human rights violation situation inside Iran.We ,the Iranian human rights group /individuals have also responsibilities not to fail and bring precise report and provide latest information to his excelency hounorable UN envoy Ahmad Shaheed.This for now.

By Stephanie Nebehay Reuters – 6 hours ago

GENEVA (Reuters) - A former foreign minister of the Maldives, Ahmed Shaheed, was named United Nations human rights investigator on Iran Friday, the first in nearly a decade.
The U.N. Human Rights Council established the independent post of special rapporteur on human rights in Iran on March 24, a move spearheaded by Washington that will subject Tehran's record to scrutiny.
The 47-member forum has voiced concern at Iran's crackdown on opposition figures and increased use of the death penalty and called on the Islamic Republic to cooperate with its new envoy.
Shaheed's appointment was announced by the council's spokesman Cedric Sapey at the end of a three-week session.
The United States and European Union voiced concerns this week at human rights violations in Iran. The EU cited reports of torture, arbitrary detention and unfair trials.
U.S. human rights ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe, in a speech, condemned the killing of Iranian activist Haleh Sahabi at the funeral of her prominent dissident father on June 1.
"Eyewitness accounts make it clear that she died as a result of reprehensible actions by Iranian security forces," Donahoe said of the activist who was on release from prison herself when she died, having been arrested during the unrest after Iran's 2009 presidential election.
The semi-official Mehr news agency reported sporadic clashes at the funeral but said the 54-year-old died of a pre-existing heart condition and not because of rough handling.
U.N. officials say Iran has not allowed U.N. human rights experts to visit since 2005, when hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected president.
Even if the new rapporteur is not allowed into Iran, he would still be expected to contact the government frequently about allegations and produce an annual report incorporating testimony from activists and alleged victims of abuse.
Shaheed resigned from his post as Maldives foreign minister in August 2007, accusing conservative elements in the government of stalling on democratising reforms.
The now defunct U.N. Human Rights Commission had special rapporteurs on Iran from 1984 to 2002.(Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay; Editing by Alistair Lyon)

Two years and more NO SLeep for regime officials! The coordinating council of the green movement announced about on going protest for June 15 &16

The peaceful protest on June 12 (the 2nd anniversary of presidential election cheating )took place on yesterday( Sunday). People marched on the streets of Tehran including from Valiasr Square to Vanak Square . Regime brought all its militia -security and police forces to the streets a show of teeth . It seems regime is relying more and more to its riot and military arsenal , spending more Oil money on them rather than on people's life and fundamental changes into the economy and infrustructure.Somehow it seems that, regime knowingly or unknowingly is pushed to a major confrontation in a battle with masses and this situation created by regime thinktank behind the close doors leading the regime to that point. The point of no return losing its forces even among religious Shiite Moslems in the city of Qom and among clergies ,Ayatollahs and allies.While regime officials are busy thinking of saving the regime with all means ,not backing down and ignoring the people's demands,making Iran like a big prison and taking Iranian people as hostage, the green movement and all social networking organization including human rights, women rights , civil rights , labour rights , students rights, all faiths rights, ethnik rights organization are patiently and under tremendous pressure weawing the knots of freedom ,social justice and leading the people to the final point besieging and finally removing the regime peacefully.
Based on reppressive policy ,on Sunday again regime continued to arrest hundereds of peaceful marching people along the streets and filling their buses prepared for this occasion and transfering them to prisons, prison which are already full.
The same situation has happened in Iran's major cities as well , peaceful march were reported in thosed cities.
How far this can go? How far the regime can continue this reppressive policy? this remind me a few years before the revolution of 1978-79 which ended the regime of Shah.

Islamic Republic continue its disastrous policy towards Iran and Iranian women !

Pictures from Iranian women soccer team in 1970's and at present ! Islamic Republic's policy towards Iranian women is discrimination against women and violation of human rights. ( Forcing the women what to wear is a rights violation).

Mon Jun 06 03:51pm EDT

The Iranian women's soccer team was in tears after being forced to forfeit a 2012 London Olympics qualifying match this past weekend because it showed up to play in hijabs. FIFA banned the Islamic head scarf in 2007, saying that it could cause choking injuries -- the same reason it gave for recently banning snoods (neck warmers). FIFA also has strict rules against any religious statements in team uniforms.
Since Iran refused to comply with these rules and didn't use the specially designed caps that its 2010 Youth Olympics team wore, Friday's match was abandoned by officials and a 3-0 win was awarded to Jordan as a result. The Football Federation of Iran said it will complain to FIFA about the ruling, but FIFA says assurances were made beforehand so that this situation would've been avoided. From the AP:

The chance in dealing with these two front is getting harder for Khamenei, because of the internal and external political crisis and bancrupt economy also growing division within its regime officials.

Deep dispute among regime officials,particularly between Ahmadinejad and Khamenei !

The dispute between Ahmadinejad and Khamenei started when Ahmadinejad forced Moslehi the Minister of Information to resigne and when Moslehi resigned , Ahmadinejad accepted his resignation but Khamenei in a statement came in rescue of Moslehi and asked him to continue his job as Minister of information.Because of this ,Ahmadinejad did not attend in cabinet meeting for almost 12 days and when returned Modslehi was absent. This dispute continued until now and of course it is intensified among regime officials. The reason for Ahmadinejad to force Moslehi to resigne was, according to one report, Moslehi bugged the office of Rahim Mashaei the deputy presidents office and in another report, Government officials particularly Rahim Mashaei tried to infiltrate in Ministry of information to steal records and documents of officials.
"No one knows what is exactly going on behind the scene that Ahmadinejad decided not to attend again in the Government cabinet meeting and he did not attend in his Monday's cabinet meeting and at the same time Rahim Mashaei ( Ahmadinejad's deputy) could not be seen in the presidents office since Monday and more than 50 close to Ahmadinejad and Government officials were arrested for questioning" reported peiknet.
Ahmadinejad doesn't want to follow Khamenei, Parliament and Guardian council . He continue to force his apointees for Oil ministry and other key ministries.Ahmadinejad believe that Khamenei together with Ministry of justice and parliament have decided to remove me from the office and appoint Ghalibaf as president and this situation may bring chaose and Musavi will gain the presidency."

The situation inside the regime in Iran is very chaotic.Adding to this is the economic hardship , and unrest among population.

Hamed Montazeri was one of those person arrested on Ezatollah Sahabi's funeral day . He said: "I'm willing to testify in any competent court."

Other witnesses including Haleh Sahabi's uncle ( Mr. Freidoon Sahabi) also approved what had Hamed told reporters.

Because of the mess the regime obstinate forces made and regime officials are the cause of their actions , the regime has ordered Sahabi's family to bury the body of Haleh at night.

Mr. Mohammad Sadegh Larijani the head of judiciary power , what are you going to do now?

Mr. Ali Larijani head of parliament , what action you are going to take?

And you, Mr. Javad Larijani ( the head of Islamic Republic human rights commission ) , what about you? Is this a clear violation of human rights or not ? Is this a crime commited by regime or not?

All of You , including Ahmadinejad and your leader ( Ali Khamenei ) are going to be held responsible for all these injustices.
