Tehran, Iran, Jun. 14 – Relatives of several hundred people arrested during a peaceful anti-government demonstration by women on Monday gathered on Tuesday outside a court in Tehran and the city’s notorious Evin Prison demanding the release of their loved ones.

One of the protests took place outside a court in Moalem Street.

At least 41 of the women arrested during Monday’s demonstration have been transferred to Evin Prison.

At least 400 people were arrested during the rally held in 7 Tir Square, according to a statement emailed to Iran Focus by one of the women’s groups that had originally sponsored the protest.

Iranian officials routinely play down the scope of anti-government protests and deflate the number of those arrested.

Evin Prison was built by the Shah’s regime as a maximum security prison to house political dissidents, but it became the Islamic Republic’s most dreaded gulag and the site of thousands of political executions.
