2018-01-12 Prominent Baha’I Sentenced to Death

Baha’i are very peaceful people with whom I have worked over the years in Australia and elsewhere.
Today I have learned that a prominent Baha’i leader in Yemen, Hamed bin Haydara, 53, was sentenced to death on 2 January of for his religious beliefs. Mr bin Haydara was sentenced after more than four years of imprisonment during which he was tortured; he was sentenced in his absence to death by a judge of the Specialized Criminal Court in Sana’a, Yemen. An appeal has been lodged. Please refer to http://bahai.org.au/index.php/death-sentence-in-yemen-alarms-australian-bahai-community/
I am calling upon human rights loving Australians and the international community to speak out against the judgement.
