Didar Ra’ufi on furlough

HRANA, September 4, 2013

On January 27, 2013, I reported that Didar Ra’ufi ( دیدار رئوفی ) had been freed after serving his sentence. This was incorrect: his release was apparently a conditional release for medical reasons, and he was later recalled to prison. He was again granted leave, apparently for medical reasons, on August 31. He is serving a three year sentence for membership of the Bahai community and teaching the Bahai Faith. He was held in section 350 of Tehran’s Evin prison until he was transferred to Raja’i Shahr on August 5, 2011. A report from the time of his arrest suggests he had an unspecified medical condition before his imprisonment began.
