sahba-rezvani (RAHANA 26 Jul 2011) Baha’i citizen Sahba Rezvani who is serving her prison sentence, has been denied furlough for the past 2 years.

Prison authorities have denied furlough and conditional release for Baha’i citizen Sahba Rezvani.

According to the Human Rights House of Iran, Rezvani who is serving her sentence, has been in prison for the past 2 years without furlough.

The law states that a prisoner can request a prison leave after serving one-sixth of her sentence. Rezvani who has been in prison since 2008, has been denied furlough other than a short one she had at the beginning of her sentence.

The law also states that a person can be conditionally released after serving half her sentence. She has also been denied conditional release because her charge includes a “security” charge.

Rezvani was detained in 2008 and was imprisoned for 2 months without a court document. She was later sentenced to 3 years and 8 months in prison for anti-regime propaganda, founding the illegal group of Khademin(Servants)and membership in the group.
