SZ and JM (Christians - FS Confirmed) Iran v. Secretary of State for the Home Department

Conditions for Christians in Iran have not deteriorated sufficiently to necessitate a change in the guidance in <a href="?docid=42c934fb4&amp;page=search"> FS and Others (Iran - Christian Converts) Iran CG [2004] UKIAT 00303 Iran</a>. For some converts to sacrament-based churches the conditions may be such that they could not reasonably be expected to return and their cases must be considered on <a href="?docid=482c17e02&amp;page=search"> HJ (Homosexuality: Reasonably Tolerating Living Discreetly) Iran [2008] UKAIT 00044</a> grounds. <br>It remains to be seen whether the proposed inclusion of apostasy in the amended criminal code will make a material difference. The amendments to the code are part of a wholesale change in the criminal law and not solely aimed at converts. The proposals are still before Parliament. <br>'Proselytising' and 'evangelising' are not terms of art and distinctions should not be drawn between them.</br>
