Detained Baha’is Probably Held In Evin Prison

The Baha’i International Community reports that the seven members of the national Baha’i committee imprisoned in Iran have each been allowed a brief phone call to their families. The calls were the first contact with the imprisoned Baha’is since six of them were arrested in Tehran in May. The seventh was arrested in March in the city of Mashhad. I have previously reported in my blog that Mrs. Mahvash Sabet and Mrs. Fariba Kamalabadi were allowed to make brief phone calls to their families on the 3rd of June. Mrs. Sabet was detained in Mashhad in March but moved to Evin Prison in Tehran on the 26th May. It is thought that the others are also being held in this notorious prison. It was later confirmed that Mr. Jamaloddin Khanjani, Mr. Afif Naeimi, Mr. Saeid Rezaie, Mr. Behrouz Tavakkoli, and Mr. Vahid Tizfahm have also been allowed brief phone calls to their families. So far no charges have been made against any of the seven individuals.  This is not surprising given that their detention is without any reasonable justification and is a manifest abuse of their Human Rights…
