NCRI WOMEN'S COMMITTEE

Works extensively with Iranian women outside the country and maintains a permanent contact with women inside Iran. The Women’s Committee is actively involved with many women's rights organizations and NGO's and the Iranian diaspora. The committee is a major source of much of the information received from inside Iran with regards to women. Attending UN Human Rights Commission meetings and other international or regional conferences on women’s issues, and engaging in a relentless battle against the Iranian regime's misogyny are part of the activities of members and associates of the committee.

Tehran's head of Justice Department announced on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, that the Appeals Court had confirmed the original sentence issued for Nazanin Zaghari.

“She had appealed for revision of her sentence… but the Appeals Court rejected the request after completing the necessary investigations. The lower court's verdict was well-documented and substantiated and was therefore upheld,” Gholam Hossein Ismaili said. (The state-run Tasnim news agency - April 26, 2017)
