Iran: more May 14, 2012

Since May 3rd reformist journalist and writer Reza Ansari Rad,serves his prisonterm in Ward 350 of Evinprison.
He was sentenced to one year in prison.
It is reported that he suffered 2 nervous breakdowns in the last two weeks.

Today the seven incarcerated Bahaileaders enter the fifth year of their prisonsentence. They have to serve another 16 years in prison for crimes they never committed.
Next week is also the one year anniversary of the raid on houses of Bahai's offering higher education on an online university to community members barred from university. 9 educators later received harsh prison sentences.
Meanwhile the persecution of the Bahaiminority is increasing.

The infantry of the Iranian army holds the "Jafar Tayyar" military drills in the North-Eastern borderregion of the country.
The purpose is increasing the combat-readiness in the region.
The drills started on Sunday and will last till Wednesday.

Because of international economic sanctions it gets more difficult for Iran to sell their oil. Iran has been routinely switching off satellite tracking systems on its sea-bound oil tankers for more than a month.
This allows their tankers as they ply the oceans in search of open ports and willing buyers.
The country also stores oil in tankers who lie floating for the petrolharbours. USA officials say the building of economic pressure increases the chances for a breakthrough in talks with International Energy Agency (IEA), starting May 23rd, which Iran would agree to abandon elements of its nuclear program.
Whether Iran is prepared to make significant concessions is unclear.


In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.
Children are being hanged to death.
A child will be hanged to death.
