TEHRAN (Worthy News)-- An Iranian convert to Christ who should have been released after completing his sentence on Jan. 13 continues to be held in Rajaei-Shahr prison in Karaj, according to Barnabas Aid.
Previously convicted of propaganda against the Islamic state, evangelism and launching a Christian website, Ebrahim Firouzi was sentenced to one year in prison and two years of exile in Sarbaz, a town in the province of Sistan and Baluchestan.
Apparently Firouzi will be facing additional charges from the Revolutionary Courts, but further legal action has yet to be announced.
