Two Iranian Baha’is, Roha Imani and Firoozeh Sultan Mohammadi, were summoned to face new charges following their release from custody in December 2023.

Reports say the Fifth Investigation Branch of Kerman informed both women on February 20 that they are accused of “promotion of the Baha’i faith” and activities deemed inconsistent with the Islamic Sharia law.

Imani and Mohammadi were initially arrested at their homes in Kerman on December 4, 2023, and held in solitary confinement for 17 days before being released on bail.

In the past year, many Baha’is, predominantly women, have been subjected to arrests and imprisonment.
