Iran: Sunni political prisoners kept in state of limbo for more than 8 years
Seven Sunni (political) prisoners identified as Davoud Abdollahi, Kamran Sheikheh, Farhad Salimi, Anvar Khezri, Khosro Besharat, Qasim Abbesteh, and Ayoub Karimi, have been detained since December 7, 2009.
Despite the fact that their death sentences have been revoked by the Supreme Court, these prisoners are still kept in a state of limbo on the verge of their ninth year of imprisonment.
The prisoners have been accused of charges such as acting against national security, spreading propaganda against the regime, membership in Salafi groups, corruption on earth and enmity with God.
However, there has been no transparency regarding the details (of their case) and their activities by officials and judicial institutions.
