Tiffany Barrans, the International Legal Director for the ACLJ, told The Christian Post,” As the world awakened to the realities of religious persecution in Iran when the masses fought for Pastor Youcef’s freedom, we must now shift our attention to defend those who defend the persecuted.”
Mr. Dadkhah was pronounced a nine-year imprisonment, because of allegedly,” acting against the national security, spreading propaganda against the regime and for keeping banned books at home.” Mr.Dadkhah, is now being detained at the notorious, Evin prison in Iran; in the political prisoner ward.
Mr. Dadkhah, has formerly offered his legal services as a defence lawyer to numerous religious convicts, out of which, Pastor Yousuf Nadarkhani’s case has been in the spotlight.Pastor Yousuf Nadarkhani, who served a three-year imprisonment sentence;was released in September. Pastor Nadarkhani was charged of attempting to Evangelize Muslims and therefore spreading apostasy.
