Amrullah Khalqiyan free on bail

Bahai News (Persian), May 25, 2017.

Amrullah Khalqiyan (امرالله خالقیان), a Bahai from Kerman, was released on bail on May 25, after 157 days of detention, first in the detention facility of the Ministry of Intelligece, and then in the central prison of Kerman.

He was arrested on the morning of December 21, 2016, along with his wife Fariba Rouhani (فریبا روحانی), who was released after a few hours’ questioning. On February 8, 2017, security forces in Kerman arrested three more Bahais: Ehsan Amiri-nia (احسان امیری نیا), Arman Bandi (آرمان بندی) and Nima Rajab-zadeh (نیما رجب زاده). On May 22, all four were tried in Kerman, on charges of undermining national security by promoting the Bahai Faith. The four were taken to the court in handcuffs and shackles. So far as I know, their sentences have not been announced.
