Pastor Saeed Abedini is facing new death threats from ISIS terrorists who are in the same Iranian prison where he is being held.
According to the American Center for Law and Justice, Abedini, a U.S. citizen, has been able to communicate with his family members and let them know he fears for his life.
“This is an extremely dangerous development that puts Pastor Saeed’s life at grave risk,” ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow said.
The ACLJ has been working to bring Abedini home after he was sentenced by Iran to eight years in prison for his Christian faith.
“We call on President Obama and Secretary Kerry to intervene immediately to secure Pastor Saeed’s release and to ensure that he is protected during this transfer to freedom. Pastor Saeed, who is approaching his second year of imprisonment in Iran, must be returned to his family without delay,” Sekulow said.
