Washington (CNN) -- Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani will be put to death for several charges of rape and extortion, charges that differ greatly from his original sentence of apostasy, Iran's semi-official Fars News agency reported Friday.
Gholomali Rezvani, the deputy governor of Gilan province, where Nadarkhani was tried and convicted, accused Western media of twisting the real story, referring to him as a "rapist." A previous report from the news agency claimed he had committed several violent crimes, including repeated rape and extortion.
"His crime is not, as some claim, converting others to Christianity," Rezvani told Fars. "He is guilty of security-related crimes."
In a translated Iranian Supreme Court brief from 2010, however, the charge of apostasy is the only charge leveled against Nadarkhani.

BULLSHIT, then every other 2 muslim men should be put to death, this is an outrage.
Let’s see. “He’s an apostate. Don’t like that? Well, he’s a zionist and has committed security violations. Not buying that? Uh, he’s a rapist, yeah and an extortionist too.”
Wonder what’s next when that hound don’t hunt.
“will be put to death for several charges of rape”
I call BS. Moslems always blame the female victim and stone HER to death for her own rape.
Psycho muslim liars.
Oh come on. If he was a rapist, they’d have killed his victims.
“Wonder whats next when that hound dont hunt.”
He did not bring his official copy of the Koran for the morning reading....that should do it but combine that with they found lots of DNA all over his prayer rug....
As long as it’s goat DNA he’ll be alright.
Can’t make up their mind.
We already know. Rape? Come on. Rape in your country is like going out for breakfast.
Did you stone the victim(s)? Pigs!
Isn’t it customary for them to put the victim to death?
Looks like a little Big Lie Damage Control just to show the West that 1.Official Iran is becoming more “Western” in its hard-line toward “Rape”, and 2. (and here’s the good part)
that it’s a CHRISTIAN who committed rape and WON’T GET AWAY WITH IT, “NOT ON OUR WATCH”!!) Hope Obambi is aware of this great leap into respectability from Iran-—he would be so proud to see all his cultural “lead-from-behind” work finally bear fruit.
I pray Pastor Youcef is ultimately set free, but if he is not, he will soon be collecting his just rewards in heaven.
What a model of courage and faith!
Excuse me? You’re Baal-god says it’s fine to lie to me. WHY THE HELL SHOULD I BELIEVE WHAT ANY MUSLIM HAS TO SAY?
Is the pastor married? Perhaps the law bans marriage for Christians and therefore his relations with his wife is called rape.
Prayers for the pastor and his family.
They have four witnesses for each of those ‘rapes’, right?
Muslims? They must go! Close every mosque until Billy Graham can freely preach in Mecca. Until Jews can get off a plane in Saudi and live. Reciprocity! The war is here, now.
There have been 20,000 muslim terrorist attacks since 9-11.Do they have to kill a million Americans before we wake up? They want to exterminate YOU.
