TEHRAN – The door to Iranian Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi’s home was forced open twice in the past 10 days, she said Wednesday, adding that she believed the break-ins were intended as a threat.

“I’m taking it as a threat, some people want to make me understand that, even at home, I am not secure,” she told AFP.”They want me to stop my legal activities, but they will not accomplish their goals,” the human rights lawyer said.

Ebadi leads a team of volunteer lawyers which handles cases involving students and opposition figures.Last month she notably warned Iran’s regime she could take the case of an Iranian-Canadian photographer killed in custody here to an international court
if justice was not served in the Islamic republic.

Her comments came after Iran’s hardline judiciary, accused of a cover-up in the death of Zahra Kazemi, abruptly halted the case.
Ebadi, who last year became the first Muslim woman to win the coveted Nobel Peace Prize, lives in an apartment underneath her office in central Tehran.

She said she believed the intruder or intruders broke the door while she was not at home. She added that nothing was missing from her apartment and that she had informed the police.

Her office acknowledged she has been the target of several threats since she won the peace prize and that authorities had offered her protection. She has refused to comment on the threats.
