iran-christianTEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)– While the world's attention was focused on Iran's presidential election, four converts to Christianity were found guilty by an Iranian court of no longer being Muslims.

The Revolutionary Court in Shiraz Sunday sentenced Mojtaba Seyyed-Alaedin Hossein, Mohammad-Reza Partoei, Vahid Hakkani and Homayoun Shokouhi to nearly four years in prison for attending a house church, evangelizing and contacting foreign governments, thereby threatening Iran's fragile national security.

Although the four converts were first arrested in a February raid on a house church, their initial hearing wasn't held until eight months later, according to Mohabat News.

However, time is not on the side of Hakkani, who continue to suffer from GI bleeding while Iranian authorities refuse to treat his condition, which is only getting worse; unfortunately, however, political prisoners in the Ebrat ward of Iran's notorious Adel-Abad prison are routinely deprived of all their basic needs, including medical attention.
