24/11/2014 (Al Arabya News – UAE): Iranian-British Ghoncheh Ghavami, arrested and charged after attending a men-only volleyball game in Tehran, was released on an almost $30,000 bail Sunday, her mother said.“My daughter has insisted in the initial court that she is not guilty,” Sousan Moshtaghian was quoted as saying by the semi-official ISNA news agency, according to the Associated Press.”We are hopeful that she will be acquitted in the appeal court,” she added. Ghavami was detained in June after she defied strict gender-segregation regulations banning women from attending men’s sports matches.Ghavami will remain free until an appeals court rules on an initial decision that sentenced her to a year in prison for “propagating against the ruling system.”..
