Human Rights Watch, the world rights monitoring group, used the anniversary of the arrests of six of the Baha'is to call for their release or a prompt trial, with "fair and open proceedings."

"These Baha'i leaders have been languishing in prison for a year now, with no access to their lawyers and no glimmer of a trial date," said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch, in a statement on Thursday. "These reported new charges only add to the fears for their lives under a government that systematically discriminates against Baha'is."
