, Index number: MDE 13/038/2006

After spending over seven months - 219 days - detained in Evin prison under a temporary detention order, lawyer Abdolfattah Soltani was released from prison temporarily on 5 March, following a bail payment of one billion rials (equivalent to US$109,524). Amnesty International welcomes the temporary release from prison of Abdolfattah Soltani, but is concerned by the vaguely-worded charges brought against him.
