CBN News (www.CBNNews.com) is reporting that Pastor Saeed Abedini’s wife, Naghmeh, says he’s doing better now that he’s getting some medical treatment.
The American pastor has been jailed in Iran for 18 months.
He was recently transferred to an Iranian hospital to be treated for injuries he has suffered in Iran’s deadliest prison Rajai Shahr, where he has been incarcerated after being moved from Evin Prison in Tehran.
After time in the “murderer ward” he was sent to a “political prisoner” ward.
His wife Naghmeh Abedini told Faith Radio (myfaithradio.com/tag/saeed-abedini), that her husband is finally being given decent meals and pain medication.
But she said he still needs surgery.
According to Jordan Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), Abedini had been shackled and refused medical treatment at a hospital, as Iranian guards forcibly banned visitors.
In early March, U.S. Abedini, who is affiliated with Calvary Chapel Boise, Idaho (www.ccboise.org), was moved from Rajai Shahr Prison to a private hospital in Iran. He was told he would receive further tests on his deteriorating medical condition and undergo surgery to address chronic pain in his stomach area – the result of numerous prison beatings.
After worldwide protests against his brutal handling, Iran called the recent shackling of Abedini a “mistake.”
