Mr. Prime Minister,

My husband, Esmail Sajedi, has been in prison without cause for the last thirteen days by the order of Yavar Imam-Gheisi, the police department investigator, because of being a Baha’i. The situation is worrisome. I beg of you to investigate [the matter] and release him.

Zeinab, the wife of Sajedi
