After security forces arrested her on August 1st, no information has been available regarding the whereabouts of civil rights activist Negisa Shahbazi.
She was arrested after the Iranian regime's security forces raided her residence, and according to her family, no information has yet been made available.
Negisa Shahbazi is an electrical engineer by profession, and she is also an active supporter of civil rights in Iran. She is also a member of the Cower mountain climbing team in Ilam, who played a major role in extinguishing the recent fires on Kabir Kuh — one of the long ranges of the Zagros Mountains near the border of Lurestan and Ilam Provinces in Ilam province, Iran. She was sharp in her criticism of the Iranian government for their inaction in dealing with the fires.
