Saba Azarpeik, journalist detained in unknown location

Your Excellencies,

I am  very concerned for my Iranian colleague, the journalist Saba Azarpeik. She has been held in custody in an undisclosed location since May 28 of this year and is reported to be in bad physical and psychological condition.
I call for her to be allowed access to her family and her lawyer and whatever medical treatment is necessary. I also call for her release, as her detainment appears to be for the peaceful expression of her opinions.
