Dr Natalie Mobini, Director, Office of External Affairs with the Australian Baha’i Community has spoken with Mr Tavakkoli's brother who lives in Adelaide, and says that he has expressed deep appreciation for the efforts of so many people in drawing attention to their case over the years. Needless to say, Mr Tavakkoli's family are very happy to have him home.

Four men remain imprisoned and are due to complete their sentences in the coming months.

However the arrests continue, with approximately 100 Baha’is currently in prison in Iran due to their faith.
