Farshid Fat’hi, a Christian activist and house church leader from Tehran, was recently given a six-year prison sentence for organizing house-church groups and spreading Christianity, Farsi Christian News Network reports.
8/3/2012 Iran (Farsi Christian News Network) – quotes Haran News Agency from Tehran; Mr. Fat’hi’s six years prison term is upheld by Court of Appeal’ ruling.
Christian activist and House Church organiser, Mr Farshid Fat’hi, from Tehran, has been charged with: “acting against national security through membership of the Christian organisation Ilam, collection of funds, propaganda against the Islamic Regime by helping spread Christianity in the country”; and sentenced to six years imprisonment.
This Christian convert was one of the multitudes of Christian activists arrested by the security agencies of the Islamic Republic during Christmas 2010.
Despite astronomical bail paid at the time, he was denied freedom; and throughout his ordeals, had no access to defence nor allowed to view charges brought against him, in either the original “trial”, or the Appeal Court of the Islamic justice.
