European court to hear case of Iranian converts facing possible death sentence

ADF International has filed an intervention in the case M. F. and Others v. Russia, urging the European Court of Human Rights to protect the fundamental freedoms of Iranian asylum seekers.

In 2018, the Russian authorities detained two Iranian converts to Christianity and ordered their deportation to their home country.

Christians in Iran, especially converts, face both social and legal discrimination. Converts have faced penalties up to and including death in the past.
