After being summoned, Noura Nabilzadeh, a Mashad Bahai citizen, appeared at the Mashad Judiciary's Sentence Enforcement Unit, where she was detained and transferred to Vakilabad Prison in order to begin serving her five year prison sentence on Saturday, September 15, 2012. She was accompanied by Sonia Ahmadi, another Bahai citizen, who was also sentenced to five years in prison by the Revolutionary Court. Sonia Ahmadi commenced her prison sentence, too.
