Little hope of release | Libération – France

37

Libération does not expect Mohammadi to be released any time soon:

“Narges Mohammadi is serving an almost eleven-year sentence in the notorious Evin prison north of Tehran. Her life is dominated by arrests, threats and interrogations by the Iranian secret services, and unfortunately she cannot hope that the prize will speed up her release. Last year’s laureate Ales Bialiatski, a key figure in the democracy movement in Belarus, is still in prison in Minsk; Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, laureate in 2010, died in prison in 2017. … This list could be continued endlessly. These heroes and heroines of peace are not fighting for their own destiny, but for that of their people and all of the oppressed.”
