Besides being summoned to court, Khadijeh Moghaddam has been barred from travel. In this respect, she told the site of Change for Equality that she had appeared in court today in relation to her participation in a protes in front of the Palestinian Embassy in support of the citizens of Gaza and refusal to obey the orders of police. During the hearing she was informed that she had been banned from travel. Given that the ban was imposed six months ago, and usually expires after six months, her lawyer Nasim Ghanavi has requested the courts to lift the ban.
