Update on Yaran Trial
Iran Press Watch

GENEVA — Details are emerging from yesterday’s court appearance in Tehran of seven imprisoned Iranian Baha’i leaders.

  • The Baha’i International Community has learned that when the prisoners arrived at the court, their families were not allowed to enter, signaling a closed hearing.

    Inside the courtroom, however, the prisoners saw numerous officials and interrogators from the Ministry of Intelligence – along with a film crew which had already set up its cameras.

    Concerned over the presence of non-judicial personnel in a supposedly closed hearing, the Baha’is – with the agreement of their attorneys – declined to be party to the proceedings.

    The judge adjourned the session and did not announce a date for continuing the trial.
