Translation by Sen’s daily
Davar Nabilzadeh has been freed from prison in Mashhad after serving a five year sentence on charges of “propaganda against the Islamic Republic, acting against domestic security through membership and participation in the Bahai sect, propaganda and communication with foreigners after traveling abroad, unlawful assembly, and publishing and distributing misguided Bahai CDs and books.” He began this sentence on July 23, 2010. The sentence relates to his role as a ‘khadem’ (the local facilitators who mediate between Bahai’s and authorities in some parts of Iran). In 1983 he served a one-year sentence for membership of Bahai organizations. His daughter, Noura Nabilzadeh, was formerly detained in Mashhad, for playing music in an orphanage.
