Mohammadi starts prison sentence

13 June 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Director re-imprisoned over the weekend in notorious Evin jail.

Concerns are growing for Iranian filmmaker and women’s rights activist Mahnaz Mohammadi following reports she started a five-year jail sentence in Iran’s notorious Evin prison on the outskirts of Tehran last weekend.

The filmmaker was given a five-year prison sentence earlier this year on charges of being involved in “a plot against state security” and producing “propaganda against the government”.

She was first arrested in July 2011 on charges linked to her work with the Western media outlets such as the BBC, Al Jazeera, Radio France and Voice of America. She was imprisoned briefly before being placed under house arrest.

There has been no official statement on her incarceration in Evin but sources close to the filmmaker in Paris say she was taken into custody on June 7.

The French Directors Guild (Sfr) launched a petition on Thursday [June 12] calling for Mohammadi’s release.
