(CHRISTIAN POST) – An Iranian Christian convert was sentenced to one year in prison on charges of "acting against national security" and engaging in "propaganda against the system" as crackdowns against Christians continue, the aid group International Christian Response reports.
The sentence was handed down to 65-year-old Mahrokh Kanbari on Monday, two days after she appeared before the Islamic Revolutionary Court in Karaj. Friends of Kanbari told the nonprofit group that the judge was rude to the defendant and tried to humiliate her when she disagreed with him.
Kanbari was arrested by three Iranian intelligence agents at her home last Christmas Eve. Authorities were said to have confiscated mobile phones, Bibles and other Christian-related materials.
