Although the trial of 7 leaders of Iranian Baha’i Community was finished on 14 June 2010, no court ruling has been issued for them yet.

According to RAHANA’s reporter, Diane Allaei, the representative of Baha’i community in the UN says: “These innocent Baha’is have been held in prison for over 2 years with successive bills of “temporary” detention, which according to the law, should not extend 2 months.”

On July 24, two days after the expiration of their 2-month temporary detention verdict, the lawyers of these 7 individuals presented the official request for their release on bail to the court.

Following submission of this request, the case’s judge informed the prisoners that their temporary detention was extended for 2 more months.

According to Diane Alaei, these prisoners have protested their objection to this issue in written. She added: “There is no legal basis to refuse the prisoner’s release to custody.”
