University of Melbourne academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert, who has dual Australian-British citizenship, has been accused of "spying for another country" by Iranian authorities. News of her detention in Iran has only recently been made public, but it is understood she was arrested not long after she completed a course on Shia studies at the University of Religions and Denomination at Qom in Iran in August in 2018, and that she has been held in solitary confinement for about a year. Pictures taken of Moore-Gilbert just before she was arrested were used by the university in promotional materials.
