Free Mohammad Ali Taheri, Iranian Prisoner of Conscience
Mohammad Ali Taheri is known around the world for his spiritual teachings and promotion of healing through alternative medicine. In 2006 he opened a cultural and educational institute, called Erfan-e Halgheh, in Tehran to develop and disseminate his spiritual beliefs. The offices of the institute were shut down in August 2010.
Mohammad was sentenced to death sentence in July 2015 for his spiritual teachings. The death sentence was quashed in December 2015 but the authorities continue to conduct investigations that could potentially support the charge. He has spent over five years in solitary confinement in Tehran’s Evin prison..
Mohammad Ali Taheri has been on more than 12 hunger strikes in protest of the five years he has been held in solitary confinement and conditions of detention. His health is fragile.
He is a prisoner of conscience, held solely for the peaceful exercise of his rights to freedom of religion or belief and freedom of expression.
