News from Baha'is in May 2020

Baha'is in Iran have continued to be arrested, sentenced to prison terms and sometimes released on bail after a period of pretrial detention without criminal charges being dropped.

The official charges are usually: forming an illegal cult, membership in the deviant Baha'i sect, membership in an anti-Islamic group, participation in illegal assemblies, propaganda against the regime, posing a threat to the holy regime of the Islamic Republic by teaching Baha'i ideas, acting against national security, espionage, and so on. Many Baha'i women are behind bars in Iran.
HRWF adds names of convicted Baha'is to its Database of FORB Prisoners only when they start serving their prison term.
