21 Earthquake Volunteer Aid Workers Arrested at Sarand Camp Will Go On Trial Monday November 19

After more than three months in the Intelligence Ministry’s detention in Tabriz, the 21 Sarand camp earthquake volunteer aid workers have been summoned by the Revolutionary Court to go on trial.

According to Kalameh, Branch One of the Tabriz Revolutionary Court, presided over by Judge Ghati Hamlbar, will try:

Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, Hassan Ronaghi Maleki, Behrouz Alavi, Hamidreza Mosibian, Farid Rohani, Vahed Kholosi, Shayan Vahdati, Navid Khanjani, Masoud Vafabakhsh, Hooman Taheri, Sepehr Saheban, Daniel Hasani, Ali Mohamadi, Morteza Esmaeilpour, Mohamad Arjmandirad, Mohamad Esmaeil Salmanpour, Mohamad Amin Salehi, Mohsen Saaemi, Milad Panahboud, Amir Ronasi, Bahram Shojaei

Their trial, on charges of participating in collusion and conspiracy to commit crimes against the national security, participating in threats against public health, and participation in defiance of police officers orders, will be on Monday November 19, 2012.

Previously, the Judicial and police officials had announced the charges for these aid workers as propagating Baha’isim and Wahhabism, spying for foreign media, and distribution of spoiled food items.

One of the defendants in this case, Navid Khanjani, is currently incarcerated in Rejaei Shahr prison in Karaj and will be taken to Tabriz for the trial.

According to the defense attorneys, the main defendant in this case is Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, a human rights activist who was a volunteer aid worker at the earthquake-stricken areas, while he was out on bail on medical furlough.
