FREE THE YARAN! The Imprisonment of Fariba Kamalabadi
Iraj Kamalabadi speaks about the travails of his sister, a prisoner of conscience now serving a ten year sentence. Mrs. Kamalabadi, a developmental psychologist and mother of three was arrested on trumped-up charges on 14 May 2008. She is living under the most dire of conditions in Gordarasht Prison, west of Tehran. Incarcerated with her are the six other members of the Yaran (meaning “friends”) an ad hoc group of leaders who oversaw the affairs of the Iranian Baha’i community. A massive international outcry for these and other innocents continues to this day.
