Christians freed by court in Nepal
Barnabas Fund, 22 May 2019
Four Christians were released from custody on 29 April after a court hearing in Nepal, six days after they were accused of trying to “lure conversions” to Christianity.
The two Nepali men and one Indian national had been working with a US woman to train local pastors in the Dang district in midwestern Nepal.
The four faced charges under the new “anti-conversion” law, according to a Barnabas Fund source, but were released after the court hearing, in a case victory celebrated by local Christian leaders.
