EXTENDED INTERVIEW WITH PETR JASEK, CHRISTIAN WORKER IMPRISONED IN SUDAN FOR SPYING
Listen here to an extended interview with Andrew Boyd in conversation with Petr Jasek. (You can also download a transcript of the interview here if you prefer.)
Czech-born Petr Jasek, a champion of the persecuted church, was accused of spying in Sudan and faced a death sentence. He was caught photographing churches that had been demolished by the state and was jailed for 445 days, before diplomatic intervention secured his release.

Petr Jasek is on a speaking tour with the UK charity, Release International, and he’s been telling his remarkable story to Andrew Boyd in a garden in Greater London…
