The attorney of three Baha’i citizens reported that each of them has received a sentence of four years and three months in prison.

Attorney Mohammad Hadi Erfanian tweeted on Friday that Sepideh Keshavarz, Mahvash Edalati, and Farid Esmaeli have each been sentenced to three years and seven months in prison for the charge of “conspiracy and assembly to act against national security” and eight months in prison for “propaganda against the system”. The three have appealed the decision.

The three members of the persecuted Baha’i community were all summoned to court and released on bail in 2018.
