From Christian Solidarity Worldwide
Iran’s Chief Justice Mr Sadegh Larijani today!
"CSW is calling for urgent worldwide prayer for the life of Pastor Nadarkhani, after learning that his lawyer is trying to confirm reports that a decision has been made to proceed with his execution. Execution could be carried out without prior notification
CSW has been informed that Pastor Nadarkhani’s lawyer is trying to confirm reports that the Iranian authorities have decided to execute the pastor. There are grave concerns that the death sentence could be carried out at any time without prior notification and that the authorities will merely announce it later, a practice that is not uncommon in Iran.
Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani is facing a death sentence for apostasy, and has been awaiting a final decision on the verdict for several months. On at least four occasions he has been offered freedom in exchange for renouncing his faith, but has consistently refused to do so."
