Iranian Christians Appeal Convictions By Islamic Court

Three Iranian Christians are due to appear before Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Court on February 4 to appeal against their 2017 convictions on charges of “conducting evangelism” and carrying out “illegal church activities.”

Pastor Victor Bet Tamraz, Amin Afshar Naderi, and Hadi Asgari each received a provisional sentence of 10 years in prison for the charges filed against them.

The Islamic judges also imposed an additional five-year prison sentence against Naderi on a charge of blasphemy.
