UPDATE: Reverend Wilson Issavi has been released on bail

Reverend Wilson Issavi, the Assyrian leader of the Evangelical Church of Kermanshah, has been detained since early February 2010.

The pastor was arrested on February 2, 2010 by agents from the Ministry of Intelligence while visiting one of his friends in Shahin Shahr, Isfahan. He was taken to an undisclosed location.

According to the Farsi Christian News Network (FCCN), security agents entered the house unannounced and detained Reverend Issavi, the host couple, and a visiting guest. FCCN stated that shortly after the arrests, the host’s wife was released.

Since the day of the arrest, it has proven impossible for Reverend Issavi’s friends and family to inquire about his whereabouts or well-being.

Iranian authorities for unknown reasons regularly arrest members of Iran’s religious minority groups.

رهبر کلیسای آشوری در بازداشت

رهانا: نزدیک به سه هفته قبل، رهبر کلیسای آشوری کرمانشاه، ویلسون عیسوی، بدون ارائه دلیل از طرف رژیم ایران، بازداشت شده است.

رادیو واتیکان روز دوشنبه ۳بهمن ، برابر با ۲۲ فوریه نوشت: نیروهای امنیتی در ۲ فوریه به خانه وی یورش برده و این کشیش را به محل ناشناخته ای منتقل کردند.

این در خالی است که در ایران با اقلیت های دینی برخورد می شود و آنها را به دلایل واهی بازداشت و روانه زندان می کنند.
