Bahai News (Persian), December 31, 2016.

Four Bahais from Zahedan have been released on bail after being held by the Ministry of Intelligence for 35 days. They are Heyda Yazdan (هیدا یزدان), Bahram Ruhani (بهرام روحانی), Mehroush Ramedanizadeh (مهرنوش رمضانی زاده) and Siavash Rahimi (سیاوش رحیمی). Mr. Ruhani was arrested on November 25, and the others on the following morning. They were released on December 31. All were arrested in their homes, which were searched.

Three other Bahais who were arrested recently in Zahedan have already been freed on bail. They are Farshid Dadvar, Amelia Hokiman and her 19-year old daughter Tabsim Hosseini (امیلیا حکیمان، تبسم حسینی و فرشید دادور).

In Shiraz, Lala Salehi (لالا صالحی), Nasim Kashaninejad (نسیم کاشانی نژاد) and Rezvan Yazdani (رضوان یزدانی) have been freed on bail of 200 million tumans (59,000 euros; $US 62,000). They were arrested in Shiraz on the evening of November 22, along with Parisa Sepehri (پریسا سپهری) and Thamar Ashna’i (ثمر آشنایی). Mrs. Sepehri, who is pregnant, was released the following day, and Thamar Ashna’i was freed on bail of 250 million tumans on December 27. All five were arrested in their homes, which were searched, and held for interrogation at “Facility 100,” run by the Ministry of Intelligence, until just before their release. They were then transferred to Adel Abad prison, where bail was arranged.
