The Committee of Human Rights Reporters announced that seven former leaders of the Baha’i community were each sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court.

On August 10th, the RAHANA website reported that although it appears that all seven of the Baha’i leaders were transferred to prison, there is no information available on the location of Fariba Kamalabadi and Mehrnoosh Sabetfrom.

Jamaleddin Khanjani, Anif Naeimi, Saeed Rezaei, Behrouz Tavakoli, and Vahid Tizfahm were transferred to Rajai Shahr prison (I.e. Gohardasht prison).

According to the Committee of Human Rights Reporters, six of the Baha’i leaders were arrested when security forces raided their homes on May 15, 2008. Mehrnoosh Sabet, was arrested on March 6, 2007.

The Bahai’i leaders were detained for the past two years on illegal temporary detention orders. Their trials were postponed several times, and after several court sessions throughout the months, they received heavy prison sentences.

کمیته گزارشگران حقوق بشر – هر یک از ۷ مدیر پیشین جامعه‌ی بهایی از سوی شعبه‌ی ۲۸ دادگاه انقلاب به ریاست قاضی مقیسه به ۲۰ سال حبس محکوم شدند.

این در حالی‌ است که این افراد بیش از ۲ سال است که با احکام پی‌در‌پی و غیر قانونی بازداشت موقت در زندان بوده‌اند. پیش از این بارها جلسات دادگاه ایشان به تعویق افتاده بود اما در ماه‌های اخیر و پس از برگزاری چندین جلسه دادگاه سرانجام حکم ۲۰ سال حبس به وکلای ایشان ابلاغ شد.

شش نفر از هفت شهروند بهایی که وظیفه‌ی رسیدگی به امور بهاییان در ایران را بر عهده داشتند از تاریخ ۲۵ اردیبهشت سال ۸۷ در جریان حمله‌ی همزمان نیروهای امنیتی به منازلشان در بازداشت به سر میبرند و نفر هفتم، خانم مهوش ثابت پیش از ایشان و در تاریخ ۱۵ اسفند سال ۱۳۸۶ در مشهد به بازداشت شد.

    1. It is such a shame that governmental prejudice against seven outstanding individuals can lead to false charges, the imprisonment of these compassionate souls, and then a total unjust prison sentence of 20 years! People of the world please speak out against this cruel regime who practices injustice so easily!

    2. For those who are familiar with the Iranian governments past injustices against the Baha’i community are saddened but not surprised with this sentencing

    3. THIS COMPLETELY CRUEL, UNJUST AND UNCALLED FOR VERY LONG PRISON SENTENCE OF 20 YEARS FOR EACH OF THE SEVEN BAHÀ`Ì LEADERS IS THE RESULT OF A TOTALLY HATEFUL, PREJUDICED AND INTOLERANT GOVERNMENT, AND IT IS ALSO AN OUTRAGE AND AN INSULT NOT ONLY TO THE WORD BUT ALSO TO THE VERY ESSENCE, MEANING, AND UNDERSTANDING OF JUSTICE. SUCH AN UNFRIENDLY, UNJUST, NARROW-MINDED, OPPRESSIVE AND WAR LIKE GOVERNMENT PRONE TO VIOLENCE — ITS PRESIDENT HAS STATED MANY TIMES THAT THE HOLOCAUST NEVER HAPPENED AND THAT iSRAEL SHOULD BE WIPED OFF THE MAP. SUCH A GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED BY THE REST OF THE PEOPLES AND COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD TO MANIPULATE OTHERS TO BELIEVE, THINK AND BE AS THEY ARE. tHIS SO CALLED GOVERNMENT MUST BE REPLACE BY ONE THAT WILL BE FRIENDLY, KIND, GERNEROUS, PEACE LOVING, HELPFUL AND MOST OF ALL,, JUST AND WITHOUT ANY PREJUDICE, REPRESSION OR OPRESSION. EVERYONE IN THE WORLD SHOULD KNOW WHAT THE iRANIAN GOVERNMENT IS DOING TO ITS BAHÀ`Ì LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AND TO OTHER MINORITY GROUPS AND PEOPLES IN THAT COUNTRY WHO DO NOT BELIEVE AND THINK THE WAY THEIR GOVERNMENTAL AND RELIGIOUS AUTTHORITIES DO. THESE PEOPLE WITH GOOD, KIND AND GENTLE HEARTS, AND WHO ARE OPPOSED TO INJUSTICE, CRUELTY AND CORRUPTION ARE BEING ARRESTED, BEATEN, TORTURED, THROWN INTO INHUMAN, UNSANTARY PRISSONS FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME, AND MANY ARE BEING MAIMED, EXECUTED AND MURDERED ALL IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE HOLY QUR`ÀN, MUHAMMAD — MAY WE ALL BE AS A SACRIFICE UNTO HIM — AND ISLAM. iT IS TIME FOR THIS TO NOT ONLY STOP BUT TO ALSO CHANGE FOR THE BEST, RIGHT NOW!.

    4. Invito il Governo Iraniano a smettere di perseguitare la Comunità Baha’i dell’Iran, continuare a farlo significa farle una grande pubblicità internazionale.Il Governo Iraniano non può far nulla , non riuscirà mai nel suo intento perchè lo scopo di Dio è quello di far crescere questa comunità religiosa che porta dei principi e insegnamenti molto innovativi per l’evoluzione spirituale e materiale del pianeta.
