Seyed Mohammad Ebrahimi, a Human Rights activist especially in women's rights and a member of the Committee of Mourning Mothers so-called Laleh's Mothers Park, was summoned to the Branch 28 at Islamic Revolutionary Court of Tehran.

Mr. Ebrahimi allegedly was called to court with the charge of relationship with Dr. Ahmed Shaheed, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran as human rights groups said.

He will be apparently on trial on 21 July as a result of revealing the news about ill prisoners who are held in Ward 350 at the Evin prison. Judge Mohammad Mogheyseh would chair the court according to the news.

The Human Rights activist was previously summoned and accused at  the first Branch  of the Moghadasi Court ( placed in the Evin prison) chaired by Judge Khorshidi, when he was jailed in Ward eight of Evin.

He reportedly has suffered from a respiratory disorder and was frequently deprived of hospitalizing by prison officials during his five-year prison time according to the news received by BCR Group. Mr. Ebrahimi caught the disease during his imprisonment in the Republic Islamic detention, solitary confinements at the Ward 209, on 2010.

Mr. Ebrahimi has been arrested on the charge of "acting against national security" insulting to the Supreme Leader of Iran and "acting against Iran's regime known Soft-War" on 13 Dec 2010, and a heart attack happened because of his long-term imprisonment in solitary confinements (Ward 209 and 240 of Evin) and finally lost his short-term memory for about eight months due to severe tortures both physically-psychologically.
