65-Year-Old Iranian Christian Convert Loses Appeal Against Two Prison Sentences

Ismaeil Maghrebinejad

An Iranian Christian convert convicted of being a member of a “Zionist” evangelical group has lost his appeal against two prison sentences he received earlier this year, according to a London-based Iranian human rights watchdog organization. 

Article 18 reports that Ismaeil Maghrebinejad, a 65-year-old member of the Anglican Church, was informed last week that two of the three prison sentences he received earlier this year have been upheld while one has been overturned.
