Sarmad Shadabi, Tara Houshmand and Rouhie Safajoo have been released on bail after 20 days in Evin Prison in Tehran.
Mr. Sarmad Shadabi’s bail was set at 200 million tumans ($66,120) while bail for Ms. Houshmand and Safajoo was 50 million tumans ($16,530) each.
These three students, expelled from tertiary education for their religious beliefs, had all tried to pursue their supposed right to education using legal means.
They were arrested in Tehran and the nearby city of Karaj on March 8. Soroush Shadabi a Bahai from Karaj, was arrested on March 11, and his business was shut down. This appears to be related to the other three arrests. He remains in prison.
