                      Anisa Jafari-Mehr

                      Anisa Al-Jaafari, a writer whose whereabouts and fate are a mystery, is stuck behind the bars of the Iranian prison, without any clarifications of why she was arrested. On the 23rd of November, she was arrested by the Iranian authority, who then stormed her house in Eslamabad, confiscated her laptop, mobile, and even books. It is worth mentioning that Anisa Al-Jaafari was a writer, art and literary critic in a Kurdish-language magazine based in Germany. Journalist and Jurists pointed out her arrest is an appalling violation of the freedom of press and expression.
