TEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)– An Iranian house church Christian was spending another day in brief freedom Friday, July 22, after he was temporarily released from jail following the payment of a bail amount of some $101,000 in local currency, Iranian Christians said.
Masoud Delijani was released from jail on July 9 after 114 days in solitary confinement, said Iranian Christian news agency Mohabat News.
Delijani, from Kermanshah in western Iran, was reportedly charged with crimes related to his Christian faith, including hosting house-church meetings, and is said to be in poor physical health. A date for his court case has not been set, trial observers said.
Delijani was detained by security forces of the Iranian Intelligence Ministry in March this year along with nine other house-church members who were gathered in a private home, according to Iranian Christians with close knowledge about the situation.
