Shamiram was called to go to a hearing on 31st July in Tehran at Branch 26 of the Islamic Revolutionary Court. The judge alloted to the case is Mr Ahmadzadeh. Shamiram’s attorney showed up in court on 31st July and asked for a delay of the hearing as he had no entrance to the case records and needs to experience all case-related documentation preceding the hearing. The hearing was put off until 21st August.

Shamiram was summoned by the experts in June 2017 to Branch 3 of the Islamic Revolutionary Court, and accused of “participating in foreign seminars” and “acting against Iranian national security” as a church member.. She was discharged following one day, on safeguard of 100 million Tomans around US$30,000).
