Pastor Behnam Irani remains in Ghezal Hezar prison in Karaj, Iran. He was convicted of crimes against the order for his Christian activities and sentenced to five years in prison. In his written verdict, it states that he is an apostate, but they have not pursued those charges against him.
He has been dealing with bloody stool for over six months, but has been denied medical attention. We are greatly concerned about his health as well as the periodic beatings he receives from prisoners.
The pictures I have included in this message are from when he was arrested in the spring of 2011. Also, attached you will find a link to a video of a man in a military uniform taking him into custody.
First we ask that you pray continuously for pastor Behnam. In addition to that we ask that you alert your Congressmen, MP’s, and various human rights organizations regarding his condition.
