ICBPS- Activists have called on the Islamic authorities to immediately release Iranian convert to Christianity Nasser Navard Gol-Tapeh serving ten years in prison for “missionary activities”.
Nasser, 60, was arrested on June 24, 2016, in a raid on a private gathering held by Christians near the Iranian capital, Tehran.
The raid took place by Islamic Intelligence agents in the Andisheh township of Karaj, near Tehran.
The security forces arrested all individuals present, including three visiting Azeri Christians from Baku — most of the Christians were released after initial interrogation.

Nasser remained in the intelligence detention as he was older than the other Christians in the group and was perceived as the leader.

‘Nasser has been denied medical treatment despite suffering from oral disease and severe visual impairment.’

The four Christians were held in solitary confinements for two months, and subjected to intense interrogation, where the goal of inquisition.
Afterwards, in May 2017, the 26th branch of Tehran Islamic Revolutionary Court sentenced him to a ten-year prison term for alleged ‘acting against national security through the formation and establishment of an illegal house church network’.
The trial was chaired by the infamous Judge Mashallah Ahmadzadeh.

‘Nasser lost his appeal at a hearing in the Revolutionary Court in Tehran chaired by Judge Hassan Babaei.’

The court refused to present the report to Naser’s lawyer Hossein Ahmadi Niaz as well as he had not been allowed access to any document in the case file.
Further, the three Azeris were also sentenced, in their absence, to ten years each in prison.
In January 2018, Nasser was taken to Tehran notorious Evin prison to serve his sentence.

This is the regime with which Obama-led global powers agreed over a failed treaty, and now the Biden administration pleas to reconcile with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.
