That this House notes that 14 May 2014 will mark the sixth anniversary of the incarceration of seven former Bahá'í leaders in Iran; further notes that their detention and trial received international condemnation for its lack of due legal process; recalls that the seven appear to have been sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment solely for their activities as members of the Bahá'í community; and calls on the Government to press the Iranian authorities to release all seven immediately and without conditions.
