    Background: ISTANBUL, TURKEY

    Seven Iranian students went on trial before an Istanbul military court on January 27, accused of setting up an armed clandestine organisation aimed at helping to establish a socialist state in Iran. The accused who stood in the dock were, from right to left, Mohammed Sadik Mumin Tayefe, Ahmet Ali Mehrazi, Seccat Sekufi, Behzat Javatlhand, Nasir Hakiki, Kerim Asadiniye and Hurmuz Sapuri. The seven, who were alleged to be members of the leftist Mojahedeen guerrilla organisation in Iran, were arrested in December. They all denied the charges against them. Teyefe shielded his face from the camera. During the hearing the judges addressed the Iranians and Mehrazi also made a statement. One of the defence lawyers asked for the trial to be held in camera on the grounds that the lives of the defendants' families in Iran would be in danger but this request was denied. The trial was adjourned to a later date.
