More than 50 Baha’is languishing in Iranian jails

While officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran claim in international assemblies and various interviews that no one is jailed because of his beliefs in Iran, according to official statistics, more than 50 Baha’is are jailed in various prisons in Iran.

These Baha’is are either jailed on temporary arrest orders or are serving their prison terms. About the same number of Baha’is in various Iranian cities are awaiting trials or verdicts from courts of first instances or courts of review. (Human Rights Activists in Iran – Aug. 17, 2011)
