Abdolfatah Soltani a lawyer and human rights defender is arrested again.

Abdolfatah Soltani is a prominent lawyer in Iran . He is a member of the Association of Human Rights defenders in Iran and a board member of the Association of Lawyers in Iran. This morning the security forces arrested him and transfered him to an unknown location . Maedeh Soltani the daughter of Abdolfatah Soltani said: "My father was arrested when he was doing his job at the court of revolution. Four agents arrested my father and then took him to his office, hew didn't have key to the office and the agents broke the door and entered into the office.I dont know what kind of document they took with them. Then, they brought him to our home and searched our house for two hours and took cameras and other items with them and when my mother protested , the agents said: we are looking for documents about the Association of Human Rights Defenders ."

A few days ago Masumeh Dehghan the wife of Abdolfatah Soltani was summoned to the court and was arrested and spent a few days in the jail. She was told " why she did attend to receive the human rights award on behalf of her husband." Later she was released on $30,000 bail and this file is still open. The judiciary arrested her to put more pressure on her husband and his activities.
