Pastor Youcef's Attorney Arrested

via ACLJ.org

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani's Iranian attorney has been convicted and sentenced to nine years in prison for defending human rights.

The judge in this case is known as one of Iran's worst human rights abusers and is commonly referred to as the "Judge of Death."

The ACLJ has been working with Pastor Youcef's attorney to secure his freedom. Now, with no legal representation in Iran, Pastor Youcef is essentially facing the Iranian regime alone – no advocate to keep him alive and to keep the appeals process going.

Sign our new Petition to free Pastor Youcef today.
Pastor Youcef's attorney will soon begin serving his time in one of Iran's harshest prisons, and no other Iranian attorney will represent him.

We must increase any and all pressure we can on Iran.

Urge the U.S. Senate to unanimously pass the resolution demanding Pastor Youcef's immediate release.
