, , 1 Comment

The final court session for the sentencing of nine Baha’is in Mashhad took place on 3 Aban 1388 (October 25, 2009). Most of these accused Baha’is were arrested on the 13 and 14 of Mordad 1384 (4th and 5th of August, 2005), and most were released on bail on 5 and 6 of Shahrivar (the 27th and 28th of August) of the same year. Mr. Davar Nabilzadeh, however was released on 6 of Mehr 1384 (September 28th, 2005).

Apparently these nine Baha’is were summoned to the court proceedings on the 15th and 16th of August, 2009. Although they were accused of taking part in a campaign against the government, activities against the national security, and illegal distribution of CDs for promulgation of their faith, as well as degrading the sanctity of Islam, no details of the final verdict have as yet been received.
