Execution of Two Baha’is in Tehran

According to recent information from Tehran, Amir-Hosein Naderi and Ardeshir Akhtari, who were imprisoned in Evin Prison three years ago, being blamed for believing in the Baha’i Faith, were executed on 6 Mehr [28 September]. There is no information about the fate of another individual, by the name of Ehsanollah Ayadi, who had also been imprisoned together with the other two and on the same charge. The officers of Evin Prison not only failed to hand over the bodies of the two individuals to their families; they did not even mention the manner in which they were executed. In the recent months, the regime has again started quite a number of executions, sending our compatriots by different pretexts to the slaughterhouse.
