Bahai World News Service: Nooshin Khadem, 48, received a General Studies degree – the only major available via correspondence courses from Indiana University, U.S.A. She also later received a Masters of Business Administration from Carleton University, Canada. Khadem worked in an administrative capacity with Bahá'í Institute for Higher Education (BIHE).
Along with several other Bahai's affiliated with the online university, Khadem was arrested on 22 May 2011. Khadem and six other Bahais first appeared in Branch 28 of Tehran Revolutionary Court with Judge Moghisseh presiding on Tuesday 27 September 2011. Their charges were stated as "membership in illegal groups with the intent to commit crimes against national security (membership in the Iranian Bahai community)."
Khadem was sentenced to four years in prison, which was subsequently upheld in the Tehran Appeals Court. She is currently serving her sentence inside Evin Prison.
