According to reports from the regime-run news agency ISNA, Hossein Khodaayaari, Fine Arts student in Kerman University will be prosecuted on Nov. 16th, 2005. The last trial where Khodaayaari's defense attorney was also present was cancelled, as the judge did not appear. The defense attorney said: "It has been two years since I was retained to defend my client. It is unclear as to why there has been a two year delay in setting a new trial date and I have stressed this issue continuously to the courts during this time."
