ImageTEHRAN (AFP) — A French researcher who stood trial in Iran on charges linked to post-election unrest is still awaiting a verdict nearly three months after being freed on bail, the Fars news agency reported on Saturday quoting her lawyer.

Clotilde Reiss was freed on bail on August 16 on condition that she stay at the French embassy in Tehran awaiting the verdict.

Her lawyer Mohammad Ali Mahdavi Sabet said the revolutionary court reviewing the case has yet to issue a verdict and that Reiss cannot leave Iran before that, Fars reported.

Reiss, 24, was arrested at a Tehran airport on July 1 for taking part in mass protests triggered by the disputed re-election in June of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

When she appeared in court in a mass trial on August 8, Iranian state media said she was accused of "collecting information and provoking rioters."

Reiss had planned to fly home after completing a six-month teaching and research assignment in the central city of Isfahan. In the closing weeks of her stay she witnessed the protests, took pictures and emailed them to friends.

France has insisted that Reiss is not guilty and has demanded her unconditional release.

Scores of reformists, journalists and opposition supporters were jailed in the wake of mass protests that erupted after Ahmadinejad's disputed re-election, and around 140 have appeared in mass trials.
