According to Serat’s political service, at the end of its 101st Conference in Geneva, Amnesty International, noting pressure from certain Western movements, called for the issue of Baha’i rights in Semnan to be investigated.

The Baha’i International Community representative in the United Nations, while calling the hostile actions against the Islamic Republic of Iran legal, claimed that the economy is separate from politics and the economic activities of Baha’is should not be shut down.
