Swedish Officials Order Iranian Christian Deported for Second Time
by Steve Little
An Iranian convert to Christianity seeking asylum in Sweden is once again facing deportation to Iran, according to his pastor. If he's sent back to Iran, the convert, Reza Jebbari, could be imprisoned or even put to death for leaving Islam.
CBN News first reported on Jebbari's case last month when Swedish authorities rejected his application for asylum and ordered him deported. A few days later, a Migration Board official announced they were halting the deportation process and granting Jebbari another hearing.
Now, Jebbari's pastor, Cai Berger, tells CBN News that another migration official has denied the request for asylum and police are seeking to take Jebbari into custody and begin the deportation process.
