No News on the Condition of Jailed Female Blogger

HRANA News Agency – Although one week has passed since Rojin Mohammadi was arrested upon arriving in Iran, nothing is known about her current condition. Rojin Mohammadi is a blogger and medical student at the University of Manila (UM) in Philippines .
It has been reported that Rojin Mohammadi is currently being held in solitary confinement in Ward 2A of Evin Prison. This ward is under the control of Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC). Thus far, Rojin Mohammadi has been denied access to an attorney and also phone calls or visits with her family .
Iranian judicial and security officials refuse to disclose to her family where in Evin Prison Rojin Mohammadi is being held. Other reports indicate that the prosecutor at the 3rd branch of Evin Court has charged Rojin Mohammadi with conspiracy against national security and propaganda against the regime by the means of human rights activism .
Nine days ago, on November 14, 2011, Rojin Mohammadi flew from Istanbul to Tehran. Upon arriving at Imam Khomeini Airport, she was arrested by Iranian security agents and taken to Evin Prison. She was then released on bail after being detained for 24 hours. Five days later, on November 19, 2011, security agents raided her father’s house in Kermanshah in order to arrest her again. However, since she was not home at the time of the raid, the police failed to take her into custody .
On November 21, 2011, Rojin Mohammadi was summoned by phone to Shahid Moghadasi Court in Evin Prison, and her personal belongings including a computer were confiscated. She was interrogated for 3 consecutive days and finally arrested again on November 23, 2011 and locked up behind bars in Evin Prison .
