Report on the situation of 3 imprisoned BIHE staff

HRANA, August 14, 2015.

Kamran Rahimiyan ( کامران رحیمیان) and his wife Faran Hesami ( فاران حسامی), and Keyvan Rahimiyan ( کیوان رحیمیان) are serving prison terms for their work for the Bahai Open University (BIHE): Kamran and Faran have 4-year sentences and Keyvan has a 5-year sentence. All three are said to be in good health at present, Faran Hesami in Evin Prison in Tehran, and the Rahimiyan brothers in Raja’i Shahr prison. Kamran Rahimiyan should be released in a few weeks, on August 22; Faran Hesami on April 7, 2016; and Keyvan Rahimiyan in August, 2017. Kamran and Keyvan have been denied any prison leave during their sentences, but Faran has been allowed leave twice, in November 2014 and March 2015.

Kamran and Faran have a son Artin (آرتین) who is in the care of his grandmother, Mrs. Rahimiyan (his grandfather was martyred for his Faith some years ago), and Artin will begin school on September 23, by which time his father should be free. Faran Hesami has applied for leave on that day, but thus far it has been denied. She is able to meet her son and mother-in-law once a week, first for a few minutes in a visiting cubicle, when they can discuss Artin’s upbringing, and then face-to-face with her son in a room for mothers and children.

  1. Prayers assured to all those in prison placed there by unjust peoples – What we as Baha’is have for these people is only sadness, sadness that their actions attract the Justice of God upon themselves, the Bounty of God is the result of all those who are oppressed or unjustly dealt with.
