Two Iranian Christian converts from Islam, Ladan N. and Hooman H., were released on bail on June 10 after spending 58 days in detention, Mohabat News reports.
6/15/2012 Iran (Mohabat News) – Two Christian converts who had been arrested separately on the same day by plain clothes security authorities in Tehran, were released on bail of 800,000,000 Toman (approximately 650,000 USD) after one week in solitary confinement and spending 58 days in detention.
According to reporters of Iranian Christian news agency, « Mohabat News» , two Christian converts, Ladan N. and Hooman H. were released on June 10, 2012 after posting the demanded bail.
According to the obtained reports, Ladan and Hooman, who had been transferred to Evin prison immediately after their arrest and subsequently taken to the interrogation office in an illegal court of Shahid Moqadas, received the ruling to be released on bail of 400,000,000 Toman for each (800,000,000 total) (approximately 650,000 USD) and eventually freed after 58 days in detention.
The reason that lawyers and Human Rights activists consider the Shahid Moqadas court illegal is that this court is located within Evin prison and because of the security measures of the place, lawyers cannot enter the court and normally suspects are being interrogated without having access to a lawyer.
Ladan, 26, and Homan, 27, were sent to solitary confinement in the detention center of Evin prison after their arrest and were held there for more than a week.
These two Christian converts were frequently interrogated by security authorities of Evin prison during this one week of solitary confinement while they had lost the sense of time and didn't know whether it was day or night. The questioning was with respect to their Christian faith, how they converted to Christianity and who helped them in this regard.
