Iran has announced the trial of seven Baha’i individuals, who acted as the Iranian Baha’i Community’s coordinating body since the execution of the last formal administrative body more than 30 years ago. The charges brought against the accused include “espionage on behalf of Israel”, “insult to the sacredness of Islam”, and “propaganda against the regime”. The seven Baha’is are currently being held in Evin Prison near Tehran.
