Saeed Abedini

 

Saeed Abedini is a father and husband from Idaho who currently is imprisoned in Evin Prison.  Saeed is a dual national of the United States (via naturalization) and Iran (by birth). He has broken no codified Iranian law, but has been sentenced to eight years in prison for practicing his Christian faith. In the last year, he has been arrested, given a sham trial before a notoriously biased judge, threatened with death, beaten, and denied life-saving medical treatment.

Advocates: Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID)

Saeed Abedini has been RELEASED.
