Turkey is subjecting Christian pastor Andrew Brunson to a kangaroo court where the so-called witnesses, who claims that Brunson is a terrorist and spy, are kept secret with obscured voices. The case is now on hold until May 7 and Pastor Andrew has been thrown into one of Turkey’s worst and least safe prisons.  Meanwhile, the American government is trying to get him released. Here’s what President Trump has say about the pastor:

Pastor Andrew Brunson, a fine gentleman and Christian leader in the United States, is on trial and being persecuted in Turkey for no reason. They call him a Spy, but I am more a Spy than he is. Hopefully he will be allowed to come home to his beautiful family where he belongs!

Here’s Kristina Arriaga, vice chairwoman of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) on this case:

…no evidence exists to support charges Brunson committed espionage against Turkey and aided terrorist groups.
"There were no charges filed against him except through secret testimony," Arriaga told CBN News.

"It is so incredibly unjust for this man – whose only crime is to believe in God and tell other people about it – that now he’s involved in a game of hostage diplomacy," she said. "Every American is at risk in Turkey."

Response: Pastor Brunson is facing 35 years in horrible Turkish prisons. In reality it would be a death sentence. According to the Turkish government he was a member of an opposition Muslim group that is considered to be a ‘terrorist’ organization. It is rather ridiculous to think that an evangelical pastor would actually participate in a Muslim terrorist group.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blames an American resident- Muslim cleric and college professor Fethullah Gulen for a coup in 2016. The US government refuses to extradite the professor without some kind of evidence. Most consider Pastor Brunson to be an ongoing political ‘hostage’ as part of an attempt by Turkey to force the United States to turn over Fethullah Gulen.               *Top
