(Worthy News) - In lieu of his medical treatments, an Iranian Christian in Rajai Shahr Prison, north-west of Tehran, Iran, was instead given five more years in prison.

According to the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Ebrahim Firouzi was first arrested by agents of the Islamic Republic on Aug. 25, 2013; he was later condemned by a court in Robat Karim to one year in prison and two years of exile in Sarbaz County. But though his term ended last January, Firouzi was kept in prison after new charges of "acting against national security" were levied against him.

Firouzi is currently in Ward 10 of Gohardasht Prison.

  1. If so called 'Civilized Nations' support funding to Iran; a nation who has cursed America and Israel while the funds were being remitted to them; .... I find the Judgement as rendered in Jeremiah to fit perfectly hand in glove with us, USA. Our actions show we are complicit with Iran's hatred for justice and mercy. Both Iran and America have become apostate partners. Woe Woe Woe where can we run to?
