Earthquake aid workers acquitted

PCED, September 4, 2013

The review court in Tabriz has acquitted all of the social activists who were arrested while bring aid to the victims of the the 2011 Azerbaijan earthquake. Of the 35 who were originally arrested, five were Bahais. They were charged with assembly and collusion to commit crimes against national security, endangering public health and insulting Iran’s Supreme Leader. The last of these accusations was also made against the lawyer acting for the group, Farid Ruhani ( فرید روحانی ), but appears to have been dropped (he has not been officially notified of it). The five Bahais concerned are Navid Khanjani, Shayan Vahdati, Mithaq Afshar, Farid Ruhani and Vahid Khalusi ( نوید خانجانی، شایان وحدتی، میثاق افشار، فرید روحانی و واحد خلوصی ).
