A Baha’i woman was apprehended by agents of the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence on the streets of Shiraz on February 13 and taken to Adel Abad prison to start her prison sentence.

The First Branch of Shiraz Revolutionary Court sentenced Mina Karami to five years in prison after finding her guilty of “deviant educational and propaganda activities contrary to or disruptive of the Sharia of Islam.”

She was also given a ten-year deprivation of social rights and a two-year travel ban.

Branch 37 of the Court of Appeal of Fars Province later upheld the ruling.

Karami’s ordeal began in September 2021, when agents of the Shiraz Intelligence Department searched her residence.

Following the search, Karami was summoned to the Intelligence Department for interrogation and arrested. She was later released on bail.
