Four Gonabadi Dervishes Final Defense in Shiraz Revolutionary Court



Four Gonabadi Dervishes appeared in Shiraz’s Revolutionary Court in order to present their final defense with the presence of their attorneys.
According to Majzooban Noor, today, 28 Ordibehesht 1392 (May 18, 2013) the last court hearing on the cases of 4 Gonabadi Dervishes, Mrs. Farzaneh Nouri and Messrs. Saleh Moradi Sarvestani, Behzad Nouri and Farzad Darvish residents of Shiraz was held in Branch 2 of the Shiraz’s Revolutionary Court presided over by Judge Yazdani while prison authorities refused to transfer Saleh Moradi from Adel Abad prison to the court.
Four Gonabadi Dervishes are charged with “propaganda against the regime”, “acting against national security” and “belonging to a deviant group” which had been handled by other court hearing last year. In the court session, Judge Yazdani asked Dervishes and their lawyers to present their final defense against above allegations and following the submission of the defense bill by the attorneys, three defendant Gonabadi Dervishes who were present at trial, asserted that according to their defense lawyers, they deny all these accusations of propaganda against the regime, acting against national security and belonging to a deviant group.
It is remarkable that, a large number of Gonabadi Dervishes had gathered in front of the Revolutionary Court to express solidarity with them.
