From Fox News:

Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who was originally sentenced to death in his native country for his Christian faith, was acquitted of apostasy charges and released from custody.

Nadarkhani, 32, was imprisoned for three years and waiting execution for refusing to renounce his Christian faith. His charges were lowered to evangelizing to Muslims, which carried a three-year sentence. He was released with time served, according to the American Center for Law and Justice, a Washington-based watchdog group that had been campaigning for the pastor’s release.

Response: This is real good news. Thousands of Christians have been praying for Pastor Youcef and Western diplomats from many different countries have been working on his release for several years.

The original charges were trumped up since it has been shown in court that he was never a Muslim and thus was not guilty of violating Iranian laws by converting from Islam to Christianity. Nevertheless he has been held in prison for 3 years and at one time it appeared that he would be executed anyway.

We have been following this case for several years. Here are links to our past articles:
