Iranian Christians appealing severe sentences

Image

Tehran: February 6, 2018. Three Iranian Christians are appealed sentences which was scheduled for Sunday 4 February to review the sentences against Assyrian pastor Victor Bet Tamraz and Christian converts, Amin Nader Afshari and Hadi Asgari. However, the hearing was postponed, and a new date has yet to be given.
Pastor Victor is appealing a 10-year sentence, issued on 4 July 2017, for "acting against national security." Amin Afshar Naderi has been sentenced to fifteen years' imprisonment and Hadi Asgari to ten years, both on the same charge. Hadi remains detained in Evin prison, having been refused bail by the Court of Appeal. Amin and Hadi have been under intense pressure to convert back to Islam, but they remain firm in their faith.
Separately, pastor Victor's wife, Shamiram, is awaiting an appeal hearing as she contests a five-year prison sentence imposed on 6 January.
