During the trial held between February 6 to 18, the prosecutor accused the defendants of using “mind control methods and psychological inductions” to promote the Baha’i faith. 

The Baha’is were reportedly denied legal representation of their choice. 

The 15 Baha’is were arrested on October 16 last year, when intelligence agents raided two homes where they had gathered.

They were eventually released on bail.
