Christian couple arrested in Isphahan, Rev Issavi still in prison

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

On February 28th fifteen uniformed police and five others in plain clothes were sent to the home of Christian married couple Hamid Shafiee and Reyhaneh Aghajary. According to the FCNN news agency, when they arrived only Reyhaneh was at home. The officials swarmed in, hand cuffed her, and then searched the house, confiscating books, computers, and personal belongings. When Hamid arrived an hour later, he too was handcuffed. It is alleged that when Reyhaneh resisted being taken away pepper spay was used.             The next day the family of the couple contacted the information centre for the judiciary. They were told the authorities were preparing files for the Revolutionary Court. The place of their imprisonment was not disclosed.             Hamid and Reyhaneh have been Christians for many years and have faithfully lived according to the traditional teaching of the historic church of Jesus Christ, as taught by the apostles, the church fathers, and all mainline denominations, including the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Churches, and the Protestants. This includes the Christian’s duty to share their faith in Jesus Christ with their neighbours. There is little doubt that this is exactly what these two faithful Christians were doing.             Their arrest in Isphahan follows that of Rev. Issavi, the Presbyterian priest from Kermanshah, when he was visiting an old friend in the city. Pray for Hamid and Reyhaneh – peace in prison; immediate release; families; Revd. Issavi – peace in prison, immediate release, wife and family The prosecuting officials – to have a conscience sensitive to the Holy Spirit
