Iran Reverses, Calls Saeed's Shackling a 'Mistake'

Iran is calling the recent shackling of American Pastor Saeed Abedini a "mistake."

Abedini's case in Iran took a turn for the worse as a result of continual beatings in the country's Rajai Shahr prison.

Saeed has been imprisoned in Iran for his faith since September 2012.

More than a week ago he was moved from his jail cell at Rajai Shahr prison to a private hospital for treatment. That treatment stopped on Tuesday.

Pastor Saeed was shackled and refused medical care and hospital doctors said he must leave and return to prison.

On Thursday, the American Center for Law and Justice said the international outcry over Pastor Saeed's treatment made Iran remove the shackles.

The ACLJ is currently meeting with world leaders at the United Nations office in Geneva on behalf of Saeed.
