One new arrest in Rasht, Gilan Province

Payam News (Facebook), October 17, 2017.

Nazila Khanipour-Machiani (نازیلا خانی پور ماچیانی), a Bahai resident of Rasht, has been arrested on the order of the Prosecutor’s Office, and taken to an unknown place. The reason for her arrest is not known.

On September 11, agents from the Ministry of Intelligence with search orders from the Prosecutor’s Office conducted a series of orchestrated searches of at least eleven Bahai homes and two non-Bahai homes in Rasht, Rezvan-Shahr, Pareh Sar, and Manjil, all cities in Iran’s Gilan Province. Some Bahais were arrested, and released on bail a few days later. The present arrest is thought to be related to these arrests, in which case Mrs. Khanipour has probably been taken for interrogation to the Ministry of Intelligence offices.
