Iranian Christian gets 10 years in prison for starting church
Anooshavan Avedian also faces a fine on charges of teaching “propaganda contrary to and disturbing to the holy religion of Islam.”
The court also punished two Christian converts in Avedian’s house church. Abbas Soori and Maryam Mohammadi face thousands of dollars in fines, a 10-year deprivation of social rights, and a two-year ban on travel abroad.
