Iran: arrests of five female Christian converts

Tehran: January 31, 2019. Iranian Christians request prayer following the arrests of five female converts from Islam to Christianity. These include Ruhsari Kamberi, a 65-year old  who was arrested and detained in Karaj, and forced to endure ten days of intensive interrogation.

Early one morning, shortly before Christmas 2018, Ruhsari Kamberi was arrested at her home by three members of Iranian intelligence. They searched her residence, confiscating mobile phones, Bibles and other Christian materials, then took her to the intelligence offices for questioning. Fewer details are available concerning four other female Christian converts, from different church groups, who were arrested at the same time.

Ruhsari was interrogated from morning until evening for ten consecutive days, then released after paying 30 million Toman bail. Two weeks ago she was brought before the prosecutor to answer charges of “acting against national security” and forced to go to a religious leader to be “instructed” and offered the opportunity to return to Islam.

Friends of Ruhsari have been shocked by this disrespectful treatment towards an elderly woman and report that she has been very upset by her experience.
