Iran has denied a pardon to another imprisoned pastor even though the regime released 11 prisoners of conscience last week.
According to Present Truth Ministries, the family of Pastor Benham Irani asked the judge to pardon him as well.
But the judge refused, saying Pastor Irani must serve the remainder of his six year sentence. He has already served more than two years.
The judge said the only way Iran would be released early is if he repents and returns to Islam.
