Radio Zamaneh, December 11

Tehran’s Prosecutor General, Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi, said on Tuesday that 28 individuals have been arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence for collaboration with “anti-Revolutionary networks.”

He told reporters that the detainees were “working in various parts of the country, were organized, and their arrest has been a heavy blow to the anti-Revolutionary [movement].” He added that some of the networks “collaborated with the Baha’is.”

He did not give details about the identities of these detainees, but an earlier report by state news agency Reporters Club indicated on Monday that following the arrest of the “director of a satellite network”, at least 30 people have been arrested and charged with activity in “underground studios” and “collaboration with satellite networks.”

The report indicated that the individuals “collaborated with foreign satellite networks… enemies of the Iranian people, and were linked to the Baha’i sect.” [Despite some reports, it is not clear from this report that the arrestees are Bahais, or even have contact with Iranian Bahais: the Iranian government and government sponsored propaganda outlets regulars claim that the BBC is a Bahai organisation ~ Sen]
