Afif Na’imi

At the insistence of the security forces, Afif Na’imi , one of the seven Bahai ‘Yaran’ (national facilitators) who are now in the sixth year of 20-year sentences for their Baha’i beliefs, was transferred from hospital to Raja’i Shahr prison yesterday. He is 52 years old, and was being treated in Tehran’s Coronary Hospital. Security officials had said last week that he must be returned to the prison on Saturday, August 9, although the doctor had certified that he was unable to bear imprisonment. Amanullah Mostaqim, one of the staff of the Bahai Open University (BIHE) in Iran who is serving a 5-year sentence in Raja’i Shahr prison, was sent from hospital to the prison on the same day, although he too has been certified as unfit for prison.
