Led by Senators Rob Portman (OH) and James Risch (ID) and Representatives Robert Pittenger (NC-9) and Bill Cassidy (LA-6), the letter states:
Dear Mr. President:
Thank you for your comments at the National Prayer Breakfast calling for the release of prisoners held around the world because of their religious beliefs such as Pastor Saeed Abedini. Pastor Abedini, a dual Iranian-American citizen, has now been imprisoned in Iran for over a year, simply because of his Christian faith. While reports show he has been moved to a ward for political prisoners, he is still being held in Rajai Shahr Prison, home to Iran's most violent criminals. Further, his health and wellbeing remain a serious concern."
