Iran: 10-year jail sentence for convert to Christianity
Catholic World News - August 08, 2013
An Iranian court has sentenced Mostafa Bordbar, a Muslim convert to Christianity, to ten years in prison, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide, a British organization that defends the rights of persecuted Christians.
Bordbar, who was previously convicted of apostasy, was arrested in 2012 as he gathered with other Christians to celebrate Christmas. Now convicted on charges of "gathering with intent to commit crimes against Iranian national security," he is jailed in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison.
