Review court in Semnan cuts sentences for two Bahai women

Filed under: Bahai rights — Sen @ 14:58

HRANA, July 2

The review court in Semnan has reduced the sentence of Taraneh Torabi ( ترانه ترابی ) from 5 years and 10 months to 1 year and 8 months. She was charged with creating and running an illegal group intended to benefit foreigners, membership of an illegal group and propaganda against the regime. “Membership of an illegal group” apparently refers to attending Bahai religious meetings.

Elham Ruzbehi (الهام روزبهی), had been sentenced to 3 years in prison, which has been reduced to 2 years. She was arrested, with several other Bahais, on March 12, 2011, following a search of her home and the seizure of some of her personal effects. She was pregnant at the time.

Both women are presently free on bail, pending a summons to begin serving their sentences.

  1. Elles sont innocentes. Elles ne doivent pas être en prison.
