The Weston man just released from an Iranian prison this week released a statement for the first time. Morad Tahbaz was accused of spying, and is among the five Americans who were wrongfully imprisoned in Iran. In a statement he says, "Freedom is a gift too many of us take for granted. For almost six years, that freedom was taken away from me. Like other hostages, my family and friends suffered greatly. Many others American and Europeans continue to suffer and be held against their will. I stand in solidarity with them and their families. It is my sincere hope and I pray that they will soon be able to join me in Freedom."
