Ruhiyyeh Qavami-nik free on bail

HRANA, August 30, 2014.

Ruhiyyeh Qavami-nik (روحیه قوامی نیک), a Bahai from Karaj, was freed on bail on August 29. She was arrested on August 17, following a telephone summons to the offices of the Ministry of Intelligence. When she complied, she was arrested, and transferred to Evin Prison in Tehran. She has a four-year-old daughter. The charges against her are not known.

[August 30, possibly related: a news site based in Karaj reports that an unconventional fashion show was held at a clothing outlet in Karaj, which was shut down (citing ‘inappropriate dress’ and ‘undermining Islamic teachings’) when a team of inspectors found the organiser was a Bahai.]
