Two more Christians held in Evin Prison, Tehran


Iran: February 19, 2018. Iranian Christians request prayer for two Christian converts who have been held in Evin Prison since their arrest on 17th November 2017.
Majidreza Souzanchi Kushani and Fatimeh Mohammadi were members of a house church meeting in Tehran. They were summoned to intelligence offices on 17th November 2017 and arrested.
Majidreza has been charged with membership of evangelistic groups and conducting evangelism under Article 498 of the penal code, which criminalizes the establishment of any group that aims to "disrupt national security", in which case he could face between two and ten years in prison if found guilty. However, it is also possible that he will be charged under Article 500 "whoever engages in any type of propaganda against the Islamic Republic of Iran or in support of opposition groups and associations, shall be sentenced to three months to one year of imprisonment".
Majidreza was recently transferred from Ward 209 of Evin prison, which is under the control of the intelligence services, to ward 4. Fatimeh is in the women's ward of Evin Prison, Tehran.
