According to information provided by BahaiNews, four Baha’i residents of Zahedan after 35 days of detention in the Zahedan ministry were released on bail. According to BahaiNews Hida Yazdan, Bahram Rouhani, Mehrnoush Ramezandadeh and Siavash Rahimi were arrested on 26 November 2016 by the security forces and released on bail a few minutes ago on 31 December 2016.
When they were arrested by security forces, their homes were also searched and their property confiscated.
In recent months, three other Baha’is in the name of Tabasom Hosseini, Emilia Hakimian and Farshid Dadvar had also been arrested in the same province of Zahedan and were released on bail.
According to the Islamic Republic of Iranian Baha’i citizens have citizenship rights, but in practice the Baha’is in Iran continuously suffer persecution and deprivation only because of their Bahá’í belief.
