British-Australian academic jailed in Iran ’moved to remote prison’

British-Australian academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert, serving a 10-year-prison sentence in Iran for espionage, has been moved to a remote desert prison. Moore-Gilbert had been held in Tehran’s Evin Prison for nearly two years, before her sudden move three days ago to Qarchak women’s prison. Qarchak has a reputation as one of the most hostile prisons in the country.

I know she meant well in her sort of activism. But, man, a lot of us are afraid to even speak up in this country right now. Fly back to Australia first, then voice your opinion. Then stay there. She's a brave soul and I wish her as well as it can go.
