Pastor Abedini shackled and denied care comment (0)

March 20, 2014

Pastor Saeed Abedini, a U.S. citizen, was moved to a private hospital in Iran but was shackled and denied medical care, prompting the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which is working for his freedom, to say his case took a turn for the worse.

The next day, March 13, ACLJ reported that Abedini, imprisoned for his Christian faith, had been released from the shackles and was allowed to receive visitors again. He had not been treated, though, for severe abdominal ailments resulting from beatings by Iranian prison guards.

Abedini’s wife Naghmeh, on Facebook, asked believers worldwide to pray and even “fast from something” until March 20, which marks the Iranian New Year, a day when the Islamic republic often grants clemency to prisoners of conscience.
