Persian Banoo - Human rights activist, journalist and former Khordad newspaper writer, Farshad Aswad was arrested late last week as he was leaving the country for Malaysia.

Farshad Aswad is a relative of Reza Khandan, the husband of incarcerated HR attorney Nasrin Sotoudeh.
Aswad was in the process of making a documentary about Sotoudeh and had voiced concern that this might cause his arrest.
