Wife of Christian held in Iran waits as trial, possible death sentence looms
Published January 17, 2013
Naghmeh Abedini has been told by attorneys for her husband, Saeed, to expect the worst at Monday's trial, where the 32-year-old husband and father faces the capital charge of compromising national security. Supporters believe the charges are directly related to Abedini’s work nearly a decade ago starting a house church movement in Iran, and the judge he'll face, Abbas Pir-Abassi, is infamous for sending defendants to the gallows.
“When I do get to speak with him, I don’t even know what to say. What do you say when you only have four minutes?”- Nagmeh Abedini, wife of American held in Iran
