Muhammad Hussein Nakh`i (85) denied prison visits and calls

HRANA, January 5

85-year-old Muhammad Hussein Nakha`i ( محمد حسین نخعی ), who has been detained since May 14, 2012, has been denied the right to use the telphone and receive visits in prison, for no apparent reason. He was arrested in the small town of Khusf, and is imprisoned in Birjand, a provincial capital close to the Afghan border. Although he requires constant medical care due to his age, and his relatives live in Tehran, family visits and telephone calls have not been allowed for some time. He has been found guilty of propaganda against the regime in the form of teaching the Bahai Faith, and membership of the Bahai community, and sentenced to three years in prison and three years suspended imprisonment, and this sentence has been confirmed by the review court.

Update, January 11
. HRANA reports that the ban on telephone calls and visits has been lifted, but prison officials are still not taking his advanced age into account, and he suffers rude and disrespectful behaviour.
