Detention Orders of Three Baha’is in Mashhad Extended

, , 1 Comment


Translation by Sen’s daily at


The temporary detention of three Baha’is from Mashhad who have been held without trial since June 1 has been extended for another month. May Khoolusi, Dori Amri and Shayan Tafazoli were arrested in the home of May Kholusi, and were at first held in Ministry of Intelligence interrogation facilities in Mashhad. They were transferred to Vakilabad prison on August 2. Thus far the authorities have not given any specific reason for extending their detention. It would appear that Dari Amri and Shayan Tafazoli were initially arrested by accident, as there was no warrant for them, but after their arrest they were accused of “propaganda against the regime.”
