The commissioner for human rights and humanitarian aid in the Foreign Office of the Federal Government of Germany, Markus Löning, has declared that the “prison sentences against the Baha’i leaders are a massive setback for all those who engage themselves for the promotion of human dignity and human rights in Iran. There are major doubts as to the compliance with the basic legal rights during the judicial proceedings. I therefore strongly appeal to the relevant authorities to annul yesterday’s judgment and to provide a fair and transparent court procedure.” (10 August 2010)
