Darya Safai and her family

Two days later, however, Safai was arrested. She was only released from prison on bail after 24 days after posting a large bail. According to Safai, she was probably released because the Iranian regime gambled that she would lead them to her husband in hiding. After her release, she took her final exams. After a few weeks she also secretly came into contact with her hiding husband and together they decided to flee Iran as soon as possible.
