An American Pastor Locked Up In A Turkish Prison Faces Additional False Charges

The Turkish government added four more charges against imprisoned American Pastor Andrew Brunson, who has been held in a Turkish prison for nearly a year.

The additional charges? “Espionage,” “acquiring secret political and military information,” “attempting to destroy constitutional order and overthrowing the Turkish parliament,” in addition “membership in an armed terroristic organization,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

Brunson and his wife, Norine, who have lived in Turkey since 1993 and raised three children there, serve a small Presbyterian church in the coastal city of Izmir.

The government initially arrested both the pastor and his wife on October 6, releasing her but keeping him incarcerated.

Despite personal requests from President Trump and Vice President Pence, the government has refused to release him, instead piling up more charges.

    The Turkish beast is doing whatever it wants when it comes to the West. The Turks arrest Americans and Germans on a monthly basis, they send their security personals to attack local citizens, Armenians and Kurds, they insult them at will — yet, Americans and Germans — whom the Turks are hugely dependent on — are reluctant to punish the Antichrist nation. What does this tell us?
