Regarding the Recent Religious Incidents and the Possibility of the Arrest of Some Active Baha’is.

After the issuance of the announcement of the police commander of Tehran and occupation of the centre of gathering of the Baha’is, given that some of the Baha’is still continue their activities, the police authorities have warned them that should they continue their actions, they will be prosecuted.

It is likely that some of the leaders of this religious group will be arrested by the police authorities.

In addition, it has been determined that any time other groups try to use this issue to incite people and disturb the peace, they too will be prosecuted.

The police authorities are monitoring the situation very carefully. . .
