Roxana's Parents in Iran This Weekend

leave a comment »

Roxana’s parents are scheduled to arrive in Tehran this weekend to help secure the release of their daughter, who has been locked up for more than two months, reports the LA Times.

Saberi has been in regular telephone contact with her parents, said her lawyer, Abdul-Samad Khorramshahi, who last met with Saberi on March 18.

“I found her in low spirits, as I had promised her she would have been bailed out before beginning of the [March 20] Persian New Year,” he said in a phone interview.

An Iranian judiciary official told reporters a month ago that Saberi would be released in days. U.S. officials said they handed Iranians a letter on the sidelines of a conference in the Netherlands on Tuesday requesting the release of Saberi, Iranian American student Esha Momeni and former FBI agent Robert Levinson, who went missing after a trip to Iran two years ago. Iran’s Foreign Ministry has denied the receipt of such a letter.
