It’s been months now and we still seems not to have heard anything from these detained Christians in Iran.
On Friday, June 24, 2016, security agents raided an engagement party in Tehran attended by Eldar Gurbanov, Yusif Farhadov and Bahram Nasibov, from Baku, Azerbaijan. Initially, about ten people were arrested, but most were soon released. However, Eldar, Yusif, Bahram and an Iranian Christian were taken to an unknown destination for interrogation.
Since their arrest, the Azerbaijani detainees have only been able to contact their families once or twice. They are being kept in solitary confinement and consular officials from the Azerbaijani Embassy in Tehran have not been allowed to see them. This is most likely due to their Christian faith.
The families of those detained have issued an appeal for help and the safe return of their husbands and fathers, saying, “They have not been charged with any crime and their future is unknown to all of us. We ask all who are concerned to help our husbands and fathers to return safely to their homes!”
