Arrestee’s family threatened in Semnan

HRANA, March 7

In the 24 days since Shidrokh Firuzeyan ( شیدرخ فیروزیان ) was arrested in Semnan, her family has been repeatedly threatened in telephone calls from the Ministry of Intelligence, who said they would hold Shidhrokh (a youth, no specific age is given) hostage until another daughter, Golrokh ( گلرخ فیروزیان ) presented herself to the Ministry of Intelligence in Semnan. If she failed to do so, not only would her sister be held in detention, the security of the family in Semnan “could not be guaranteed.” However Golrokh does not live in Semnan, but in Tehran, 200 kilometres away. She wrote a letter to the Prosecutor in Semnan, giving her address and telephone number in Tehran. On March 5, three security officers from Semnan arrived at her home in Tehran, with a warrant for her arrest, but since she was not at home they had to leave. Since February 12, when the homes of the Fanaeyan and Firuzeyan families were searched and a computer and religious books and some photographs and personal effects were confiscated, and Ardeshir Fanaeyan ( اردشیر فناییان ) and Shidrokh Firuzeyan were arrested, there has been no indication of why the Ministry of Intelligence is interested in these three Bahai youths.
