Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve Russell (R-OK) issued the following statement on a Turkish court’s announcement of the release of U.S. evangelical pastor Andrew Brunson:

 “Today’s decision by the Turkish court to release Pastor Andrew Brunson is long overdue. Over the past two years, Pastor Brunson and his family have been through a significant and unjust experience – yet throughout their hardship, they never gave up hope. Their strength and faith never wavered. It is our hope the U.S. and Turkey can close this unfortunate chapter and move on as NATO allies and I am grateful Pastor Brunson will finally be returning home.”
