The wife of U.S. Pastor Saeed Abedini, Naghmeh, and American Center for Law and Justice Executive Director Jordan Sekulow will testify before the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations this week.
The hearing on the plight of Pastor Saeed, who's been imprisoned in Iran for his faith, is set for Thursday morning in Washington.
Pastor Saeed was transferred last month to the violent criminal ward in Rajai Shahr Prison, the deadliest prison in Iran. Since then, he has been repeatedly robbed and threatened at knifepoint.
What kind of conditions is Pastor Saeed currently facing? Jordan Sekulow, with the American Center for Law and Justice, explains this and more, on CBN Newswatch, Dec. 9.
With Iranian authorities refusing to give him his medication, his health is also declining. According to the ACLJ, he's malnourished and covered in lice.
"In light of his deadly situation and the Obama administration's refusal to even ask for Pastor Saeed's release in recent direct negotiations with Iran, it is imperative that Congress speak out," Sekulow wrote.
"The U.S. State Department and the Obama Administration must make Pastor Saeed's freedom a true priority. The life of a U.S. citizen - whose only "crime" is his Christian faith - is a stake," he warned.
