TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency is reporting that a jailed American pastor of Iranian origin is to be released imminently after posting $ 116,000 bail.
It quotes lawyer Nasser Sarbazi as saying Saeed Abedini stood trial at the Revolutionary Court Monday on charges of attempting to undermine state security by creating a network of Christian churches in private homes.
Sarbazi says he and his client rejected the charges. He says the court will issue its verdict in due course but Abedini, who was jailed in September, will be released within the next few days after posting the bail.
The lawyer says Abedini will be allowed to leave Iran and meet his family in the U.S. Abedini's father also attended Monday's court session.
