Fa’ez Baqeri receives brief hospital care

Bahai News (Persian), June 25, 2015.

Fa’ez Baqeri (فائز باقری), a 17-year-old Bahai from Yazd who was arrested, along with his father Nasser Baqeri (ناصر باقری), in their home on February 28, 2015, has been moved from prison to hospital because of a severe infection of the inner ear. He is said to have incurred the infection during his detention and interrogation, and to have lost 40% of his hearing. Although he needed nursing care, the prison officers took him in handcuffs and ankle shackles for a brief medical examination and then took him back to prison.

[So far as my records show, Fa’ez Baqeri was arrested without a warrant, and therefore with no charges, and has not been charged or tried — yet he has been detained for three and a half months while the fifth bench of the Court in Yazd prepares a case against him. ~Sen]

Fa’ez Baqeri’s mother, Mrs. Fariba Ashtari (فریبا اشتری), began a 3-year sentence (she also has a 1-year suspended sentence) in the Central Prison in Yazd on February 21, 2015.
