Shima Babai, the civil rights activist, was arrested by IRGC officials in a raid at her father’s house on May 25, 2016. Officials seized her personal belongings- books, hand writings and cell phones- in the attack, BCR Group has learned. The civil rights activist was reportedly taken to the notorious Ward 2-A of Evin prison.

She, 21, was previously arrested along with Mahmoud Massomi and Elham Rasoolibaghi two weeks ago. She was released after hours.

Finally, Shima Babai, the 21-year-old civil rights activist, was released on bail of $33,000 (100 million Tomans) on June 1, 2016 after enduring eight days in solitary confinement in Evin in the hands of the IRGC.
