Translation by sen’s daily
Riaz Sobhani, a Bahai who worked for the Baha’i Institute for Higher Education (BIHE) as a building industry consultant and manager, was released from Raja’i Shahr Prison in Karaj today at the end of a four-year sentence. He was arrested on June 14, 2011, not long after security forces raided premises and homes relating to BIHE. He was tried and sentenced in Tehran by Judge Moghiseh.
BIHE is a distance-learning institute founded by Baha’is in Iran and serves students who are excluded from tertiary study in Iran because they are Baha’is.
