Translation by Sen’s daily 

LM On the evening of March 9, Laleh Mehdinezhad and a number of Baha’is who were present in her home were arrested by agents from the security forces. The agents searched her home and seized some personal effects before taking her to the office of the Ministry of Intelligence in Varamin. After interrogation there, she was taken to Section 209 in Tehran’s Evin Prison, which is run by the Ministry of Intelligence. Her friends were released without a bail at about 2 in the morning, on March 10, after a short interrogation. It would appear that after being taken to Section 209, Laleh Mehdinezhad was taken back to Varamin for another interrogation, and was then returned to Section 209.

It is worth mentioning that a few weeks ago, Rouhieh Bagherdokht (Akbari), Safa Forghani (Jannati), Mona Mehrabi (Alizadeh), Elham Karampisheh and Mehrdad Forghanif were arrest by security forces on Tuesday Feb 16 2015 during simultaneous raids in Tehran and Varamin (1). The families of these Baha’is have still not been able to meet them in prison, or have telephone contact. In fact they do not know where they are being held, or other details of their case.
