November Trial Date For Hikers In Iran

shane bauer3 November Trial Date For Hikers In Iran

Minnesota native Shane Bauer and another hiker being held in Iran will go on trial next month on trespassing and espionage charges. That word from Bauer’s mother Cindy Hickey of Pine City, who talked with WCCO Radio News. 

It’s not known if Shane and Josh Fattal will be tried together or separately at the November 6th trial. But Hickey has no plans to be there.  She doesn’t think it will make a difference, since her last trip to Tehran in May ended without Shane’s release. 

Hickey is hopeful the hikers will be freed soon after the trial.  They’ve been held in Iran since July 2009.
