Seven Bahais summoned and interrogated in Qazvin

HRANA, January 20

The Ministry of Intelligence bureau in Qazvin has summoned and interrogated a Munireh Shah-Muhammadi ( منیره شاه محمدی ). In June, 2009, her home was searched and her religious books and computer and other personal effects were seized, and she was held for one day for interrogation. Behnam Momtazi ( بهنام ممتازی ), another Bahai from Qazvin, was arrested on December 11, and is now free on bail. Six other Bahais are also known to have been summoned and interrogated at the same time [the report does not say clearly whether this means December or January ~ Sen]. Their names are reported as Vahid Faroughi, Wasal Momtazi, Navid Mola’i, Mehrzad Zahra’i, Mas`ud Behrami and Mas`ud Bahaquli ( وحید فروغی، وصال ممتازی، نوید ملایی، مهرزاد زهرایی، مسعود بهرامی و مسعود بهاقلی ). They were interrogated orally and in writing, and some were asked to sign pledges that they would not engage in cultural or publicity work.
