Baha’i International Community rejects Iranian allegations on recent arrests

The Bahá’í International Community has rejected the Iranian government’s allegations that six Bahá’ís were arrested last week “for security reasons and not for their faith.”

“All of the allegations issued in a statement on Tuesday by the Iranian government are utterly baseless,” said Bani Dugal, the principal representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations, referring to statements made in a press conference given on May 20, 2008, in Tehran by Iranian government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham, at which he acknowledged the arrest and imprisonment of six Bahá’í leaders last week.
