WASHINGTON, DC (ANS) — Iran’s Revolutionary Courts have been used to imprison Christians and other minority religious groups for decades. In prison, they suffer brutal interrogations and torture.
According to International Christian Concern (ICC – www.Persecution.org ), the US government now has legal tools to punish the individual judges involved in imprisoning Christians.

The Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act allows the president to apply sanctions to individual human rights offenders.
ICC has identified several Iranian judges involved in imprisoning Christians and is petitioning the president to penalize them.
ICC said: “Please help us move the US government to target these judges. Today is your last chance to sign this petition, urging the president to impose sanctions on the Iranian judges we have identified. Please join us in speaking up for the voiceless!”
