Justice itself is Handcuffed in iran

Nasrin Sotoudeh managed to embrace her husband for a few seconds and for the first time since she was arrested in September last year. Nasrin has been sentenced to 11 years imprisonment but now she faces a life time ban from working as a lawyer.

Sotoudeh was brought from Evin prison before the Iranian Bar Association, handcuffed throughout, to defend her right to continue work as a lawyer.

Sotoudeh represents justice and those who have the courage to stand up for justice. This picture is symbolic of what has happened in Iran, justice itself has been handcuffed in Iran.
