Ad Feedback

An Iranian court convicted a group of Christians for being part of a house church.

The group included four men, a woman and her teenage son, all Iranian converts to Christianity.

Among other charges, the four men were convicted of propaganda against the Iranian regime, disrupting national security, having contact with foreign ministrie,s and spreading Christianity.

The men were sentenced to 44-month prison terms, with two receiving an additional eight months. The woman and and her son each received two-year suspended sentences.

The six Christian converts were first arrested in February 2012 during a worship service in Shiraz. They spent more than a year in jail before their first court appearance.

A Revolutionary Court in Shiraz that deals with cases of national security tried them. The sentence was handed down the day after Iranians elected Hassan Rouhani to replace outgoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
