Hadi Asgari was released on 11 April from Evin Prison. Previously, he was refused bail, but a judge reconsidered and he was set free on conditional release after posting bail.
Convert to Christianity, Hadi Asgari was originally arrested on 26 August 2016 while on a weekend trip with friends. He was accused of “violating the national security by hosting house churches and promoting Christianity.”
Believers in Iran are asking for prayer for Hadi as he recovers from 19 months spent in prison.
They also ask for prayer for his appeal hearing in a few weeks. Two other imprisoned Christians, Amin Nader Afshari and Victor Bet Tamraz, are also attached to that appeal.
