ILNA, one of the regime-run news agencies reported that Abdolfatah Soltani's wife, Massoumeh Dehqaan, has spoken out about her husband's arrest. Dehqaan said: "58 days have passed since my husband's arrest and not a single lawyer has been able to meet with him and there is no sign of a trial."

Abdolfatah Soltani was one of the lawyers representing the family of murdered photo-journalist Zahra Kazemi and several incarcerated student activists who himself was arrested in July of this year.
