Naghmeh Abedini: "This is Devastating to our Family"

May 22, 2014 • Iran
Naghmeh Abedini spoke to the Samaritan's Purse staff in October about her husband's imprisonment in Iran.

Naghmeh Abedini, wife of the American pastor jailed in Iran, talks about her husband's plight on Fox News.

UPDATE: Pastor Saeed was released from prison on January 16, 2016.

In an interview on the Fox News Channel, Naghmeh Abedini and Jay Sekulow, executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice, talked about the latest developments in Pastor Saeed’s wrongful imprisonment in Iran.

Pastor Saeed had spent the past two months in a hospital for injuries inflicted by guards and inmates before being removed from the hospital and taken back to the notorious Rajai Shahr prison, where he was once again beaten, according to family members who say they witnessed the beating.

“This news is devastating to our family,” his wife, Naghmeh told Fox News. “This development also came as a complete shock to all of us. Saeed’s family, who was present at the hospital when this occurred, witnessed the severe beatings that Saeed received – at one point seeing him collapse before being taken away. We’re very concerned about his health.”
