Tehran: Jailed pastor describes ‘psychological abuse'

BERLIN – Iran’s prison authorities have ratcheted up the pressure on American- Iranian Pastor Saeed Abedini to renounce Christianity.
In a letter written by the 32- year-old Abedini – and released on Friday – he says the conditions in Tehran’s Evin Prison, are “so very difficult that my eyes get blurry, my body does not have the strength to walk, and my steps become very weak and shaky.”In his first letter from Abedini since his conviction in January for practicing Christianity in the Islamic Republic, he wrote, “They are only waiting for one thing... for me to deny Christ... But they will never get this from me.”
The Washington-based American Center for Law and Justice released Saaed’s letter.
