The authorities expelled an Iranian pharmacist student from Hungary as a result of a politically motivated show trial, even though she did not commit any violation of law. She is one of those Iranian students who had allegedly violated the hospital quarantine rules.
We present the story of this young woman referring to her under the fictitious name Simin/Zara. Two (anonymized) eyewitnesses and two lawyers, Balázs Tóth and Gábor Győző from the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, who represented her, tell the chronicle of a show trial.
