Last Modified: 04 Sep 2010 20:52 GMT

 Nazar-Ahari was originally arrested after Iran’s disputed presidential election in June 2009

A court in Tehran, the Iranian capital, has tried a female human rights activist and journalist on charges including “warring against God,” which has the potential punishment of death.

Shiva Nazar-Ahari, 26, went on trial on Saturday “on charges of Moharebeh [warring against God], conspiring and gathering to commit a crime, propaganda against the regime and harming public order,” Mohammad Sharif, her lawyer, said.

“After presenting the last defence, the end of the trial was declared.

“We are awaiting the verdict and I am not pessimistic about the fate of the case.”
