HRANA: Jiinoos Noorani and Roofia Beidaghi, two Semnan Province Bahai residents, have started their prison terms inside Semnan Prison after they were summoned for their sentence enforcement.
Jinoos Noorani and Roofia Beidaghi were each sentenced to one year in prison on charges of "propagating against the state," and "membership in the Bahai organization" by a lower court and their sentences were subsequently upheld by an appeals court.
Roofia Beidaghi was arrested in her shop in her home town of Sangsar in Fall of 2010 and Jinoos Noorani was arrested in Winter of 2011. They each spent time inside Semnan Intelligence Office before they were released on bail.
Currently the two women are held inside Women's Ward of Semnan Prison, notorious for its poor hygienic conditions and over-crowding, where they are kept in a room with 60 other prisoners, most of whom are drug traffickers.
Roofia Beidaghi's father, Goudarz Beidaghi, arrested in March 2010, was also sentenced to one year in prison and three years' exile from Semnan Province on charges of "propagating against the state." The family's shop in Sangsar was sealed in April 2011 and its operation license has since been revoked.
