Fox News - Attorney for Christian Pastor on Death Row in Iran Reportedly Sentenced to 9 Years in Jail
Prominent human rights advocate and attorney Mohammad Ali Dadkhah, who represents the Christian pastor sentenced to death in Iran in a case that sparked international condemnation, has reportedly been sentenced to nine years in jail for allegedly "acting against national security" in Iran. . . .
