Two Iranian Baha’i leaders returned to Evin prison


 — The two women amongst Iran’s seven imprisoned Baha’i leaders have been returned to Tehran’s notorious Evin prison.

The Baha’i International Community has confirmed that Fariba Kamalabadi and Mahvash Sabet are now back behind bars in the jail where their incarceration began three years ago.

The transfer of the two women to Evin followed a brief spell held in reportedly appalling conditions at Qarchak prison, some 45 kilometers from Tehran.

It is understood that family members of the two prisoners have now been able to visit them at Evin.

Mrs. Sabet and Mrs. Kamalabadi – along with five male colleagues – were members of a national-level ad hoc group that helped attend to the needs of Iran’s 300,000-strong Baha’i community. After an illegal 30 month detention in Evin, they were tried on trumped-up charges and each sentenced in August 2010 to 20 years in jail.
