Iran has freed on bail a French teaching assistant charged with spying after taking part in post-election rallies.
Clotilde Reiss was accused at a mass trial last month of aiding a Western plot against the Iranian government following June’s disputed presidential poll.
The 24 year old’s father Remi Reiss said: ‘‘We’ve spoken about bail….there are also a certain number of safeguards. I imagine so the Iranian authorities are able to have Clotilde at their disposal in the next few days.’‘
Tehran says Reiss admitted to writing a report about the demonstrations that saw hundreds of people detained.
However, Paris denies this saying it was simply an email and that she was pressured into a confession.
