'Marine Held in Iran': Greta Goes Inside the Fight to Free Amir Hekmati
Over the past few weeks, Greta Van Susteren has highlighted the plight of a former U.S. Marine who has been held in an Iranian prison for more than three years.
Sgt. Amir Hekmati, an Iranian-American with dual citizenship, was arrested while on a trip to Iran to see his ailing grandmother and accused of being an American spy.
He was convicted on a lesser charge and sentenced to 10 years in prison. His family says he has been tortured by Iranian authorities.
In the special hour, Greta will talk to Amir's brother-in-law, who called it "hurtful" that more is not being done to free the former Marine.
"We think Amir is worth fighting for, aside from being a Marine," said Dr. Rami Kurdi.
"He’s an American citizen and top of that he’s a man who served his country, who did his time, put his life on the line. He would do it today. He’s that kind of person and it’s obvious. He’s a decorated Marine and to know that more was not being done, that we had to act through the Swiss, it was hurtful to be honest."
And you'll see more from Greta's trip to Michigan, where she sat down for an exclusive interview with Amir's parents and family members.
