Seven Iranian Baha'i leaders incarcerated since 2008 are scheduled to appear in court on June 12, the Baha'i International Community representative to the United Nations in Geneva has told RFE/RL's Radio Farda.
Diane Ala'i said on June 2 that it was not clear why the hearing has been set for the anniversary of Iran's disputed presidential election.
The seven have been accused of "acting against Iran's national security," "collaboration with foreign countries," and "corruption on earth," among other charges.
There have been three hearings of their case so far this year, but the last, in April, was adjourned when the Baha'is refused to appear in court.
"The Baha'i leaders refused to attend the trial when they saw that their families were denied entry to the court, while Intelligence Ministry officials and interrogators, along with a film crew, were there," Ala'i said.>>>
