The Iranian judiciary has summoned renowned actress Haniyeh Tawasoli after she expressed sympathy for the family of a 16-year-old girl fatally injured in an alleged confrontation over a head-scarf violation.
Tawasoli shared two court summons on her Instagram account on October 30 with the caption, "Two courts. These are the days I face, hoping for better ones."
The actress is required to appear in Branch 26 of Tehran Revolutionary Court on November 6 over her Instagram posts expressing sympathy for Armita Geravand's relatives.
Armita fell into a coma on October 1 after being assaulted at a Tehran metro station for not wearing a headscarf. She died at the weekend.
Tawasoli received another summons instructing her to appear in Branch 9 of the Tehran Culture and Media Prosecutor's Office within five days over accusations of "publishing false information and unverified material."
Earlier reports said that Tawasoli was among seven celebrities and journalists facing court cases initiated by the Tehran prosecutor.
The actors mentioned in these reports faced arrests and bans last year in response to their involvement in protests related to the Woman, Life, Freedom movement.
