Jalil Mohammadi, Alireza Asgari and Rayhane Ansari were put on trial

 Three members of the Coordinating Committee were put on trial in Tehran at Islamic Revolution Court Branch 4.
They are accused to “acting against the national security” by formation of an illegal group (the Coordinating Committee). All the three prisoners rejected this charge because none of them has been a founder of the Coordinating Committee to Form Workers' Organizations. The court attempted to accuse the Coordinating Committee for being a follower of political parties, which was also rejected by them. They defended the independence of the Committee.

Jalil and Alireza were returned to the central prison of Karaj after the court session. Rayhane Ansari was released on bail earlier.
