Roxana Travelling to Paris to Join Call for the Release of Former Evin Prison Cellmate Silva Harotonian

with 2 comments

Roxana will be in Paris June 22nd – June 24th to participate in events that will call for the release of Silva Harotonian, a humanitarian worker with whom Roxana shared a cell while imprisoned in Iran. Silva has been detained on “soft revolution” and is currently facing her second appeal.

While in Paris, Roxana will join Silva’s friends, family and supporters to mark the one-year anniversary of Silva’s imprisonment and urge for her immediate release.

Roxana has described Silva as a source of support and encouragement during their time together in Iran’s Evin Prison.

Silva was arrested when she traveled to Tehran on behalf of her employer, the International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX), a global nonpolitical NGO, as an administrator of a program that improved healthcare for women and children in Iran.

Visit to hear an audio message by Roxana about Silva and to learn more about Silva’s story.

Expect updates on Roxana’s visit to Paris.
