Amnesty International welcomed the news of Sotoudeh's temporary release, but said: "Nasrin shouldn't have been imprisoned in the first place."

Amnesty added: "We urge the Iranian authorities to confirm an extension to this period of leave, to allow Nasrin to get any medical checks which she may not have received in Evin prison. In order to abide by human rights commitments, though, her conviction should be overturned and she should be released unconditionally."
