Location: Iran (Islamic Republic of)
Arrested: December 2010
In a letter written from prison, Farshid Fathi described how his interrogators have used emotional manipulation against him. He wrote, "I was told falsely that my wife had been arrested as well, and that I needed to give my [two] children's custody to someone temporarily. I was also informed, falsely, that my dad had a heart attack and was hospitalized. Then they wouldn't give me any follow-up news on whether he was dead or alive. It was all intended to put me under mental pressure."
In reality, his father is fine, and his wife and two children fled Iran in 2011. They are now in Canada.
Continue to pray for Farshid, who faces at least three more years in prison. His faith remains strong.More Info
