Request for immediate release:
It is noted that Aziz Samandari and many other Baha'is have been arrested over the last months in Iran and are currently being detained becasue of their belonging to the Baha'i Faith.
Despite condemnation by the International Community on several occasions, and specifically those contained in the resolutions concerning the non-respect of Human Rights in Iran, I am deeply shocked to observe that these arrests, detentions and persecutions continue.
[While not being Baha'i myself], I request the immediate and unconditional release of all people detained in your prisons without any evidence or for fallacious reasons. I demand the enforcement of all the Human Rights Charter articles that the Iranian Government signed on December 10, 1948. I specifically refer to the following articles: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13, 20, 22, 23, 26, 28 of the Charter.
