Iranian human rights organization HRANA reports a small wave of arrests in Iran this week. On Monday, Nura Samitra Fallah, a Baha’i from Shiraz, was summoned to the Ministry of Intelligence and arrested upon her arrival. As we noted in our media round-up this week, Nora had been previously detained in Pelak 100 prison in February 2012 after having her home raided and searched.

 

 

 

 

 

Two more Baha’is were arrested in Sanandaj, the capital of Iran’s Kurdistan Province. The home of Samim Zara’i was raided on Saturday, July 6th by security agents, who subsequently arrested him. HRANA also reports that Sama Raufi was also arrested — but there is not much information on his detainment, only that he was arrested in “the past two months”.
