Iran has called for the immediate release of TV anchor and documentary filmmaker Marziyeh Hashemi, whose employer, the English-language channel Press TV, said was arrested on Sunday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) at St Louis Lambert International Airport.
The woman, who was born in the USA as Melanie Franklin, is expected to be released from a Washington, D.C. detention facility after she testifies before "a grand jury investigating violations of USA criminal law", the court document released Friday said.
Federal officials confirmed on Friday that a prominent American-born anchorwoman on Iranian state television was jailed in the USA as a material witness and has not been charged with any crime, according to court papers.
Press TV said Marzieh Hashemi's court appearance is Friday. Hashemi has not been accused of any crime and the USA government anticipates her release immediately after the completion of her testimony before a grand jury that is investigating violations of US law.
She has been appointed an attorney, according to the order, and she has appeared before a U.S. District Judge twice.
Once she finishes testifying before a grand jury that's investigating violations of a US criminal law, the government expects that she'll be released, the order said.
