Shirin Ebadi 30 November 2009
Lawyer says she has Nobel Prize confiscated

Iranian human rights lawyer Shirin Ebadi says the Nobel Peace Prize medal she won in 2003 has been confiscated by the Iranian authorities. She also believes her bank account has been frozen. Ebadi criticised Iran's recent disputed election and the subsequent treatment of the protesters. She is the first Muslim woman to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Jane asks Nazenin Ansari, diplomatic correspondent for Kayhan, an Iranian newspaper based in London, what the confiscation means both for Ebadi and for women's rights in Iran.
