Status of five imprisoned Christians still uncertain

Family members of five Christian prisoners arrested in Firouz-Kouh county are concerned about the’ prolonged detention of their loved ones as they fear Iranian intelligence forces may be trying to fabricate accusations against them.’[1]

‘Ramil Bet-Tamraz, is the son of the Assyrian pastor, Victor Bet-Tamraz, former leader of the Pentecostal Assyrian Church in Tehran and is currently under arrest.  Reports indicate that he suffers from a number of health issues and the conditions in Evin prison are putting his health at serious risk.’[2]

‘Two of these prisoners, Ramil Bet-Tamraz and Amin Afshar Naderi were previously arrested in 2014 and were released on bail, which makes the situation worse for them.’[3]

‘The greatest concern of the families of these Christian men is that the authorities may fabricate storied and that authorities would put their loved ones under pressure, forcing them to confess to crimes they have not committed.’[4]

Please pray that God would comfort and strengthen these men and sustain their families at this difficult time.
