The lawyer for the Iranian Pastor sentenced to death for being a Christian, has just been sentenced to jail himself
Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani was sentenced to death in the Islamic Republic of Iran for the crime of apostasy. He could have been released if he did as Iran demanded and converted back to Islam but her refused to recant his faith! Now, Mohammad Ali Dadkhah, the lawyer representing this pastor, has been sentenced to nine years in jail.
Jay Sekulow of ACLJ appeared on Fox News speaking about Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s lawyer facing jail in Iran. Mohamad Ali Dadkhah, has been convicted for representing clients in human rights cases. He is the attorney for Pastor Youcef and recently represented 12 Christians in a separate case. Dadkhah previously told the ACLJ that if he himself was placed in jail, “no attorney would be willing” to take Nadarkhani’s case out of fear of “being imprisoned or disbarred” for representing the Christian pastor.
