The trial of the seven leaders of the Bahá’í Faith in Iran is currently scheduled for April 10th, 2010 in Tehran. To summarize, these individuals have been held in the notorious Evin prison in Tehran for well over a year without access to their lawyer, Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi. The Iranian government’s charges against them are trumped up: “espionage for Israel, insulting religious sanctities, and propaganda against the Islamic republic” and “spreading corruption thoughout the earth.” This is patently ridiculous and part of the insiduous pattern of persecution that have followed the Bahá’ís in Iran since the Faith’s inception in the 19th century.
