Iran Denies Pastor Saeed Medical Treatment

Ad Feedback

American Pastor Saeed Abedini, imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith, is being denied medical treatment.

Abedini is suffering from internal bleeding after months of beatings by prison guards.

A few weeks ago, Iranian authorities promised he would receive medical attention, but that didn't materialize.

The American Center for Law and Justice says he was taken to the hospital and returned to prison without being treated.

Iranian officials claim the specialist he was supposed to see wasn't available. Instead of letting one of the many doctors on staff examine him, he was returned to prison without seeing anyone.

The ACLJ has obtained his mailing address at the Evin Prison, and they're encouraging people to write him a note for his upcoming 33rd birthday on May 7.

In a statement posted on their website, the ACLJ warns that Iranian officials are carefully scrutinizing all his mail.

"It is important that we not say anything that could be harmful to Pastor Saeed's case. Statements against Iran or specific references to outside organizations or churches could be harmful.  But please let him know you are thinking about him, that you are praying for him, and that you want to see him released to his family," the statement reads.

***Please consider sending Pastor Saeed an encouraging message to let him know people are praying, watching and fighting for his freedom. For further information go to
