Little Nima: “Mommy Said Save this Kiss and Give it to your Daddy!”

Nasrin Sotoudeh is currently in a solitary confinement cell in ward 209 (operated by the Ministry of Intelligence) in Evin prison, Tehran. She is on the 27th day of her hunger strike.

Reza Khandan: When Nima exited the prison gates today, the first thing he did was wipe off his mother’s kiss from his cheeks and said: “Mommy said to save this kiss and to give it to you when I came out!” Last night, after what happened yesterday [unsuccessfully waiting 3 1/2 hours outside the Evin prison gates to visit Nasrin], the prison contacted us and told us to bring the children to Evin prison to visit Nasrin. The children were allowed to see their mother for a few minutes, in the presence of security agents, at a location other than the usual visitation area. The children spoke to their mother about their day-to-day life, school, homework, and other activities.

Unfortunately, we were unable to accompany the children during the visit. We were not even allowed to accompany them inside the prison to make sure they had successfully passed the guards at the entrance.

Nasrin’s hunger strike continues…
