There has been another wave of media coverage surrounding Parnaz Azima’s release–stories that mention Kian are available on the Media Coverage page.
According to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty,
A social scientist who specializes in urban planning, Tajbakhsh was detained in Tehran along with Esfandiari in May. Like Esfandiari, Tajbakhsh faces charges that include acting against Iran’s national security.
But unlike Esfandiari, Tehran has not allowed Tajbakhsh to be released from prison on bail. Shortly after Esfandiari’s release from Evin prison in August, an Iranian judicial official said Tajbakhsh also would be released on bail soon. But many days have gone by and Tehran still has not determined his bail or provided a date for his release.
As posted here earlier, there have been reports that Kian’s bail was set at roughly $110,000, but apparently the Iranian authorities have made no provisions to allow that bail to be posted.
This week the Daily Star (Lebanon) also published a revised version of Pamela Kilpadi’s op-ed piece about Kian, titled “The Dead Silence About Kian Tajbakhsh.”
