"The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which defends human rights and religious freedom, said today an appeals court in Tehran rejected the appeal of American Pastor Saeed Abedini, a U.S. citizen, and refused to reduce his 8-year prison sentence. Pastor Saeed's wife, Naghmeh, called the decision "devastating" and the ACLJ is now exploring all legal and governmental options available.
Naghmeh Abedini said:
"My husband is serving 8 years in the notorious Evin prison and facing daily threats and abuse by radicals because he refuses to deny his Christian faith. And yet, my President, President Obama, has not spoken a word about him."
