 Pastor Saeed Moved to Another Ward in Iran's Evin Prison, Family Told

Pastor Saeed Abedini, a U.S. citizen facing a possible death sentence for his Christian faith in Iran and whose whereabouts were unknown since Thursday, had been moved to a different ward in Tehran's Evin Prison, the pastor's family has been told. However, the prison officials' claim is yet to be confirmed.

Prison officials told Saeed's family on Saturday that he had been moved to Ward 3, Hall 1 of Evin Prison in Tehran, according to information received by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which is representing Saeed's family in the United States.
However, the pastor's family could not see or speak with him because visitors are allowed into Ward 3 only on Monday. He was allegedly moved to this ward to receive better medical treatment.

After two days of Saeed's trial, which began last Monday, Judge Pir-Abassi, notoriously known as the "hanging judge," had apparently told the pastor's lawyer, Dr. Naser Sarbazi, that he would see to the pastor being moved from his current ward to another ward, where he would receive better medical treatment.

However, it is not known what Saeed's health status is or if he is actually receiving treatment. It is difficult to believe Iranian officials, as they have often provided contradictory information to Saeed's family.
