Tehran: December 12, 2017. (Middle East Concern) Iranian Christians request prayer for four Christian converts who face an appeal court hearing on Wednesday 13th December 2017. A hearing had been scheduled for 4th October 2017 but was rescheduled by the judge.
The lawyer for Yousef Nadarkhani, Mohammadreza Omidi, Yasser Mossayebzadeh and Saheb Fadaie received notice that the appeal hearing will be held at the Revolutionary Court in Tehran. They are appealing 10-year prison sentences received for propagating house churches and promoting "Zionist Christianity". The verdict was dated 24th June 2017 and received on 6th July.
Yousef and Mohammadreza have also been sentenced to 2 years' exile; Yousef in Nik Shahr and Mohammadreza in Borazjan. Both of these locations are in the south of the country, far away from their families in Rasht.
As they were taking communion at the time of their arrest, on 13th May 2016, Yasser, Saheb and Mohammadreza faced separate charges of consumption of alcohol. On 10th September 2016, they were sentenced to 80 lashes each.
Their appeal against this sentence remains outstanding.
