Just over a year after his celebrated release from prison in Iran, persecuted Pastor Saeed Abedini’s marriage to his wife, Naghmeh, came to a bitter end last Thursday under a cloud of whispers and accusations of adultery and conspiracy.
“Naghmeh, today my divorce got finalized legally after one-and-a-half year,” Abedini declared last Thursday on his Facebook page.
Officials from the Fourth District Court of Ada County in Idaho, where the divorce documents were filed, said Wednesday they could not discuss the details of the divorce because the documents were sealed. A source familiar with Naghmeh, who now goes by her maiden name Naghmeh Panahi, confirmed that the divorce was finalized.
Since last Thursday, however, Abedini has been posting criticisms of leading religious figures like Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, claiming that they used him for personal gain until media interest in his story waned.
