Imprisoned Baha’i Sentenced

The Human Right Activists News Agency (HRANA) reports another disturbing development in Iran-

Payam Fanaian, a Baha’i follower arrested in the wake of Ashura protests on December 27, 2009, has been sentenced to six years in prison by the Revolutionary Court. According to HRANA, Fanaian is a victim of the mass arrests conducted by security and intelligence agents against the Baha’i community in Iran. He was arrested in Tehran on January 3, 2010, along with ten other individuals. Although a written sentence has not been issued to him, his ruling has been communicated to his court-appointed lawyer.
