This is regarding Iran’s claim (see article below) they are “not holding ANY U.S. Citizens” …
“…. The fact remains that Amir Hekmati is a U.S. citizen. He was [born in Arizona,] raised in Flint, played on his high school hockey team, and went on to serve his country admirably as a U.S. Marine. He’s been falsely imprisoned for over two years and continues to sit in an Iranian prison. It’s time for Iran to release Amir so he can be reunited with his family, including his ailing father, in Michigan.” — Congressman Dan Kildee
FREEDOM TO RIDE!
FREEDOM OF RELIGION! FREEDOM OF SPEECH! These are among the many freedoms that Americans cherish and celebrate every 4th of July. This is why millions annually try to enter the U.S. legally and illegally!
We want these freedoms to be restored to Amir, Saeed and Robert before 7 – 4 – 2014!
We also commend Senators Jim Risch (R-Idaho) as well as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, James Inhoffe and others who have been very supportive of Pastor Saeed Abedini and his family.
However, we regrettably report that we have found nothing (not a single Tweet!) since January 1st from the U.S. Congressman and either FL Senator (one R, one D) that represents Robert “Bob” Levinson! I will not call them out by name at this time allowing for the possibility we may have missed something. We have reached out to all three elected officials with no response as of this writing. We would love to be proved wrong!
Note to all Congressmen and Senators: you do not have to be on a certain Washington DC committee to speak out for an American who is unjustly held overseas.
Please use your voices publicly and privately for these men who cannot speak for themselves!
Iran reiterates its claim: Flint prisoner, Amir Hekmati, not a U.S. citizen!
By Blake Thorne, MLive.com, The Flint Journal, Feb. 11, 2014
FLINT, MI — Iranian officials recently reiterated their position that Amir Hekmati, the Flint man imprisoned there, is not a U.S. citizen.
According to Iran’s Tansim News Agency, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham on Sunday, Feb. 9, denied that any U.S. citizen is held in Iran and that Hekmati and others referred to as U.S. citizens are Iranian citizens “who, like any other citizen, will be held accountable before the law while fully enjoying their legal rights.”
