October 8, 2016- 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Homa Hoodfar, an Iranian-Canadian professor at Concordia University in Montreal, has been indicted in Iran on unknown charges, according to Iranian news agencies.
Hoodfar, 65, was first arrested in March — shortly before she was to leave the country — by the counter-intelligence unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards who searched her Tehran residence, and seized her personal computers, cellphone and passport. They told her she could not leave Iran to return to Canada.
