Ghoncheh Ghavami in Tehran Jail.
Supreme Court dismisses charge against British Iranian volleyball fan she spent five months in Tehran jail.
Iran has said it will allow female fans to attend big sporting events alongside men all the way, overturning a long standing ban that made international headlines when a young British Iranian woman was jailed for trying to attend a men’s volleyball match in 2014.
The deputy minister for sports, Abdolhamid Ahmadi, said that state news agency on Saturday that the country’s national security council had approved that government proposal to allow women to watch games this year freely.
Iranian authorities detained Ghoncheh Ghavami, 26, in June for trying to attend a men’s volleyball match.
