Iran Sentences Pastor Saeed Abedini to 8 years in Evin Prison

Pastor Saeed Abedini, who is an American citizen, has been beaten and tortured since his imprisonment last fall and is now facing eight years in Evin Prison, one of the most brutal prisons in Iran. He has been convicted for his involvement in house churches in the early 2000s.

Evin Prison is a prison in Iran, located in Evin, northwestern Tehran. Beatings, torture, mock executions and brutal interrogations are the norm at Evin prison.

Farshid Fathi is also being held at Evin Prison.
