Iran: Jailed Christian convert continuing hunger strike in prison
Amin Afshar Naderi, a Christian convert, has been imprisoned and held in limbo for six months in Tehran’s Evin Prison.
He has been on hunger strike for the past seven days protesting his uncertain conditions and is now suffering health complications.
Naderi was arrested once in 2014 for seeking membership in a house church, then held in solitary confinement under interrogation in ward 209 and eventually released on a heavy bail.
He was arrested again on August 26th along with 13 other men and women in Firouzkuh, northern Iran, held in solitary confinement for 82 days in ward 209 and thus transferred to ward 4.
His case is under investigation and he remains in uncertain condition.
