AP~Worshippers at an Armenian Catholic church in Tehran, one of the churches that enjoys relative freedom in Iran

Three Iranian Christians have been charged with ‘Mofsed-e-filarz’, or ‘spreading corruption on earth’, which carries the death sentence.

Pastor Matthias Haghnejad, Pastor Behmnam Irani and Silas Rabbani have all been charged in recent weeks, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) reports. All three men are well known and respected leaders within the Church of Iran.

Pastor Haghnejad was originally charged with ‘Moharebeh’, meaning ‘enmity against God’ following his arrest on July 5, but has now charged with the more serious crime.
