We need to hold Iran’s new president to his promises

Shahin, a talented Iranian Christian musician, was arrested last October during a raid on a prayer meeting. The seven others who were arrested with him were released on bail, and are appealing their sentences. However, Shahin is still in Adel-Abad Prison in Shiraz, serving a two and a half year sentence on false political charges.
