Shamiram Isavi Khabizeh is the wife of Pastor Victor Bet Tamraz, one of the Iranian pastors sentenced to 10-years in prison during the past year. In June 2017, authorities called on Shamiram to appear in court to address the charges leveled against her. She has been charged with “participating in foreign seminars” and “acting against Iranian national security” as a church member. Her lawyer recently requested a postponement of the hearing because he has had no access to the case files and needs to go through them to adequately prepare her defense. Fortunately, the delay was granted.
