A Bahaii woman was arrested after one month of harassment, intimidation and shutdown of her business.
Ms. Sara Akhlaghi is a Bahaii residing in Shiraz. She was summoned to court on June 16, 2016, to sign papers in order to have her maison unlocked.
Ms. Akhlaghi advertized her maison’s wedding gowns on the instagram.
However, internet security agents hacked and blocked her account for “dissemination of indecent photographs and inciting and encouraging others to breach public decency.”
In the next stage, her maison was sealed without prior notice. They posted a banner on the door, which read, “This business has been sealed because of disseminating indecent photographs and is not allowed to do business.”
Then on June 16, Ms. Akhlaghi was summoned to court ostensibly to reach agreement for unlocking her business, but she was arrested on the spot. There is no information available on her whereabouts.
