About Mahvash Sabet
Mahvash Sabet served for several years as secretary of an informal council of seven individuals known as the Yaran, who have been responsible for managing the affairs of the Iranian Bahá’í community. In 2008 she was arrested and jailed for two-and-a-half years without a proper hearing. She was finally convicted and condemned in 2010, together with her fellow members of the Yaran, to twenty years imprisonment. Beneath all the false accusations – those usually fabricated against the Bahá’ís in Iran – there was nothing more than her belief in her Faith and her commitment to running the affairs of the Bahá’í community.
