University of Melbourne lecturer Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert has been named as the third Australian currently being held in Iran’s Evin prison. Pouria Zeraati, who is the editor of Persian language broadcaster Manoto TV, says Moore-Gilbert was arrested in the 2018 summer, and that she is serving a 10-year jail sentence on unknown charges; Moore-Gilbert is understood to be in solitary confinement. Her family says they have been working closely with the Australian government to try to secure her release. Moore-Gilbert had been lecturing on Islamic studies at the University of Melbourne’s Asia Institute prior to her arrest.
