The brother of an Iranian Christian who met with US President Donald Trump in July has been released from prison, along with a handful of other Christians and high-profile international political prisoners.
The Christian Post reports Dabrina Bet-Tamraz has confirmed her brother, 35-year-old Ramiel Bet-Tamraz, was released three months early from his four-month prison sentence for participating in house churches.
Ramiel’s release comes with the freeing of more than 85,000 other prisoners serving short-term prison sentences, as the Iranian regime attempts to combat the spread of the coronavirus in its overcrowded prisons.
Ramiel had been in prison since early January and was released in late February.
Dabrina says her brother’s release was a big surprise and a miracle for her family.
She called for continued prayer for those who remain in Iran’s prisons, asking for God’s protection over their health.
