Forty years ago this month the Iranian regime arrested nine members of the Baha’i National Spiritual Assembly of Iran, no one has heard from them since. Sadly we must conclude that these nine individuals met the same fate as the more than 200 other Iranian Baha’is who have been executed for peacefully practicing their faith. We ask the international committee when will Iran’s regime be held accountable for those crimes.
