It is deplorable Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has been jailed for 38 years and sentenced to 148 lashes after she defended women who removed their headscarves in public.

How on earth can this type of violation of human rights still be happening in the 21st century.

This is unbelievable cruelty - it's breathtaking and completely unacceptable.

The international community has to do more to clampdown on the abuse of human rights in Iran.

It is extremely worrying that this intimidation and prosecution of human rights activists in Iran, seems to be increasing.
