The long night of Shiva Nazar Ahar

In these days when the whole world seems to have mobilized to prevent the stoning to the iranian Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, there are other women who risk their lives in Iran. And waiting for a ruling that could be a death sentence. Shiva Nazar Ahar is one of them. He's only 26 years, wrote on a blog and reporters working for the Committee on Human Rights (Chrr). From December 20, 2009 is in jail and will be processed tomorrow.
The real fault of Shiva is to be a journalist and has written articles unwelcome scheme. But among the allegations against him is the "propaganda against the regime" over the dreaded "conduct hostile to God." Charge that can carry the death penalty.
Shiva was arrested Dec. 20, 2009, on his way to the funeral of Grand Ayatollah Montazeri, a cleric who had criticized the government for the violent response to demonstrations that followed disputed elections in June 2009.
Arrested, so why was attempting to exercise his right to freedom of expression. The charges against you for having participated in the events of November 4 and December 7, 2009 "acting against national security" and only in April this year was also accused of "creating unrest among the public by writing Chrr on site and other sites.
Tomorrow will be an important day for Shiva, because after months in jail and in court will address the process that could also end with a sentence of death sentence.
Shiva is unfortunately not new to prison, despite his young age. Was among the founding members of the Reporters Committee for human rights and for his own work as a journalist and blogger has never been clearly seen from the scheme. His first arrest dates back to 11th September 2002, just 18 years.
Human Rights Watch urged the Iranian judiciary to apply due process in respect of Shiva, also enabling it to meet a lawyer for the time necessary to build his defense. It also invited to release the young woman for a year now in "temporary detention" in violation of international law and the Iranian.
She has denied all accusations against him and despite the absence of evidence the girl was forced to remain in jail all these months in very precarious conditions of hygiene.
In an interview with an Iranian newspaper, said Shiva's mother that her daughter now shares a cell with 26 other inmates. Despite the room there are only 21 beds. Shiva is then forced to sleep on the floor. The inmates are facing very difficult conditions, but this is almost nothing compared to the 33 days of isolation imposed on the young man in a space so small that they barely move. Now with the 26 cell mates sharing the little water, cold, available up to 3 hours.
In June this year, the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, had demanded the release of the young. Same request made by various human rights organizations and the European Parliament. Hautala, Chairman of the European Parliament Subcommittee on Human Rights, requested the immediate release of Shiva, under fire for its human rights and arrested only obligation of silence.
Tomorrow the judges will decide what to do with this young woman and this will be an even longer night than usual for Shiva Nazar Ahar.
