Esha still not permitted to leave Iran

Several news media including LA Times, and the Iranian news agency ILNA, on November 18 quoted Alireza Jamshidi, the spokesperson of the Iranian Judiciary, saying that 'there are no obstacles for [Momeni] to leave the country.'
However, Esha Momeni's passport has not been returned to her and according to close friends, Esha was told by the officials today that this news was incorrect and that she does not have permission to leave the country.
