The statement calls for the immediate release of Abedini and all other prisoners who are jailed for their religious beliefs.

The statement also expressed concerns about Abedini's possible "physical and psychological abuse" in jail.

Abedini holds both Iranian and U.S. citizenship and was arrested when he travelled to Iran last year "to visit his family and follow up on the establishment of an orphanage." He has been given an eight-year prison sentence for security charges.
