In their quiet home in the countryside, C.'s grandparents have made pancakes. Her mother and brother are in the living room and two of her old housemates have joined them next to the fire. For more than three months the life of this extended family and friends has been been dominated by visiting rooms, letters and visits to the woman's prison at Fleury-Mérogis south of Paris where C. currently resides. Having been placed under formal investigation for criminal conspiracy to commit a terrorist act and remanded in custody, C., who is 30, faces a ten-year jail term if she is tried and found guilty.
Since January 7, 2023 our colleague and friend Mortaza Behboudi has been imprisoned in Afghanistan, in the Taliban prisons.
We do not forget him and call for his release.
