On the morning of Monday 8 February, 3am local time, Maryam Ghanbari, a 27 years-old lawyer and an active member of Meydaan (Women’s Field), was arrested at her home in Tehran by five Iranian security officers, according to her lawyer, Mina Jafari. The location to which Ms. Ghanbari was taken and where she is currently being held is unknown, as well as any formal charges she might be facing.

Ms Ghanbari has been very active in the national women’s movement’s struggles against the draft of a new family law that includes laws on divorce, fixed-term marriage contracts for men, child custody, and legislation that would allow a man to take a second wife without the permission of the first in certain circumstances. She is also part of the Volunteer Lawyers Network, which is a voluntary legal service for vulnerable women.

Selon  RAHANA,   the family of the detained lawyer were notified over the phone that the bail has been set at $50,000 for her release.  On February 27th, 2010, twenty days after her arrest, Maryam Ghanbari’s family went  to Evin Prison to post the $50,000 bail announced to them by the magistrate court which has recently been established in Evin
