Leva Khanjani granted prison furlough

Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Jailed Baha’i citizen Leva Khanjani was granted temporary release from Evin prison on Wednesday July 11.

According to CHRR, Leva Khanjani, Bahah’i student banned from her education and sentenced to 2 years in prison, was finally granted furlough from Evin prison.

Leva Khanjani’s brother Foad is serving his 4-year prison sentence behind bars in Rajai Shahr prison. Leva Khanjani’s father, Alaeddin Khanjani was arrested by security forces on February 10, 2010 and was released on bail on March 16, 2010.

Leva’s grandfather Jamaleddin Khanjani is one of 7 jailed Baha’i leaders, and is spending his 20-year prison sentence behind bars in Rajai Shahr prison. All seven Baha’i leaders were sentenced to 20 years in prison after their May 2008 arrest during early morning raids on their homes. Jamaleddin Khanjani has spent months behind bars without furlough and was not even allowed to attend the funeral services of his wife.
