Mahvash Sabet, one of the Baha'i 7, is free

September 19, 2017
Iranwire videos

Mahvash Sabet, one of the leaders of Iran's Baha'i community, has been freed after 10 years. 

Sabet and 6 other leader from "the Yaran," or "the friends," were arrested in 2007. They were charged with spying for Israel and insulting Islam, and sentenced to 20 years in prison, and in 2015, the sentences were commuted to 10 years.  

IranWire welcomes Mahvash Sabet's release, but it does not mean freedom for the Baha'i of Iran.
