Speak out for Amir Hekmati and help secure his freedom from Iranian prison

My brother Amir Hekmati -- a loving son and uncle, American citizen and former U.S. Marine -- has been in Iran’s Evin Prison for almost two years, charged with being an American spy. But my brother was not, nor has he ever been, a spy.

On August 29, 2011, Amir disappeared while visiting our grandmother in Iran – the first time he had seen her since he was a young child and his first trip to Iran. We only discovered days later that he had been detained by Iranian intelligence forces.

In January, four months later, Amir was sentenced to death in a closed door trial. Later, Iranian courts lifted the death penalty because of insufficient evidence. But Amir is still in prison, in terrible conditions.

Since his death sentence was vacated, our family in Michigan hasn’t been allowed to talk to Amir at all – no letters, no phone calls, nothing. This means that Amir doesn’t know that our dad was recently diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and is fighting not only for his son’s freedom, but for his own life, too.

Please join us in our fight to bring Amir home by signing this petition asking U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the State Department to do everything they can to bring Amir home – to bring him back to the country he defended, to bring him back to the family that loves him, to bring him back to his father. Before it is too late.

      Beyond worrying about US-Iran relations amidst sanctions negotiations the US should also be concerned with protecting its citizens abroad.
