After 3 weeks’ detention, still no contact with Shamim Ruhani

صد نامه تا آزادی (blog), November 28, 2013

On November 5 agents from the Ministry of Intelligence in Ahvaz searched the home of Shamim Ruhani ( شمیم روحانی ) and seized religious books, personal documents, a mobile telephone and a computer. They took Mr. Ruhani and a number of Bahais who were present in his home away. All the detainees except for Mr. Ruhani were released on November 8. More than three weeks have passed, but it is still not known where Mr. Ruhani is being held, or why he was arrested. Despite the efforts of his wife Mina Ruhani-Karimi (مینا روحانی – کریمی) to find out how he is, there has been no news, no telephone contact and no meeting with his family. At one time she was told he would be released on bail, but when she returned she was told the judge had denied bail.
