Farhad Eghbali, a Bahai prisoner of conscience from Gorgan, has been exiled to Raja’i Shahr prison of Karaj, where he is currently in the quarantine unit. Mr. Eghbali was one of about twenty Baha’is, and some Muslims accused of associating with Baha’is, who were arrested in Gorgan in November, 2012. His 5-year sentence was confirmed by the court of review on August 27, and he began his sentence in Gorgan on the same day. At some stage he was transferred to Evin prison, in Tehran, and now to Raja’i Shahr prison.
