Immediate release of Pastor Andrew Brunson from unjust detainment.

Filed under FreedomShare!  

#ForgottenAmericanInTurkey – 78 senators and representatives urged Turkish president Erdogan to return US citizen Andrew Brunson. In February 2017 these congressional leaders sent a letter to the Turkish president. Andrew Brunson is the pastor of Izmir Resurrection Church. As of now, the pastor is still not released and is being unjustly detained in Turkish prisons on false charges relating to membership in a “terrorist group”. No, he belongs to an evangelical Presbyterian church.

Now you can add your own name to the same letter mailed by congressional leaders. Send Erdogan the same message over and over as a constant reminder to free this brother in Christ. This will be e-mailed directly and a signature list mailed later on.

Request Immediate release of Pastor Andrew Brunson from unjust detainment by Turkey.

Dear President Erdogan,

We write to request that Mr. Andrew Brunson, an American citízenwho has been unjustly detained in
Turkey, be immediately released and deported.
Mr. Brunson has worked peacefully in Turkey since 1993. There appears to be no evidence to substantiatethe charges against him for membership in an armed terrorist organization. Moreover, your govemment has repeatedly denied regular and appropriate access to legal counsel and American consular services.
Mr. Brunson's imprisonment has been raised repeatedly by U.S. Government officials with officials of the Government of Turkey. Unfortunately, high-level efforts to secure Mr. Brunson's release have been unsuccessful. We have closely followed developments with this case, and are deeply disappointed.
The United States and Turkey have benefited from a close partnership for decades, and we hope to be in a position to continue strengthening these ties. Now is the time for our countries to reaffirm respect for fundamental freedoms and the rule of law while reasserting our shared commitment to addressing security challenges through partnerships and cooperation.
In this spirit of partnership, we respectfully ask you to consider Mr. Brunson's case and how the recent
treatment of Mr. Brunson places signif,rcant strain not only on him and his family, but also on the robust bilateralrelationship between the United States and Turkey.
We appeal to you to inquire as to the options for promptly deporting Mr. Brunson and to act on them
expeditiously.

Sincerely,

[signature]
