Calling on Newbury MP Richard Benyon to secure Prime Minister’s help

Bahá’ís in West Berkshire have written to Richard Benyon, MP for Newbury, to ask him to call for the release of seven Bahá’í leaders in Iran.

The local Bahá’ís are asking Richard Benyon to help win the support of the Prime Minister in a campaign to secure the release of their fellow Bahá’ís in Iran.

“The seven Bahá’í leaders have each been sentenced to 20 years in jail just because they are Bahá’ís. We are really anxious for their safety and for their families,” said West Berkshire Bahá’í Shawn Khorassani.
