Iran upholds 6-year prison sentence for convert to Christianity
Catholic World News - August 10, 2012
Iran’s court of appeals has upheld a six-year prison sentence for Farshid Fat’hi, a convert to Christianity who organized a house church.
Arrested in 2010, Fat’hi was sentenced on charges of “acting against national security… [and] collection of funds and propaganda against the Islamic regime by helping spread Christianity in the country.”
