Narges Mohammadi, a human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and Hollywood actress, former ambassador of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina Jolie, who was detained in Evin's prison, had a telephone conversation.
Axar.az reports that "Time" published information about this.
This year’s Nobel Peace Prize Laureate cannot attend the award ceremony in Oslo on Dec. 10. Narges Mohammadi sits in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison, where she is serving her third prison sentence for defending human rights. A mathematician and physicist who loves singing and mountaineering, she told me she would have had a very different life in any other country. However the political situation in Iran gave her no choice, and she has devoted her whole life to the struggle for freedom and equality in her country.Mohammadi has endured beatings and mistreatment in prison and is suffering from ill health, including the effects of a recent hunger strike. She is barred from speaking to her children or even receiving a photo of them. Yet she still retains the courage of her convictions. “If I were to return to the starting point again,” she told me, “I would make the same choices with more determination and will.” Convinced that she would live to see the victory of rights over despotism, she said, “Prison walls will never stand in my way.”
