Anglican Bishop adds his voice in raising concerns over the possible execution of 7 Baha’i leaders.


Since their arrest in March 2008, the 7 Baha’i leaders have remained imprisoned without any formal charges, whilst Shirin Ebadi, their legal representative is placed under constant threat. Now it seems that their situation could be reaching a critical point, as recent reports have suggested they have been sentenced to death. Although this has not been confirmed, alarm bells are ringing. Amongst those voicing their concerns are British Foreign Office minister Lord Malloch-Brown and the Anglican Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham.

Bishop George Cassidy asked at question time in the House of Lords: “What action are the Government taking on the position of the seven leaders of the Baha’i community who have been imprisoned without trial and held in severe conditions and who are now threatened with execution for no other crime than their religious beliefs?”
