Iranian Hostage Crisis

By  | 

An Elizabethtown man held hostage in Iran for 444 days wants compensation.
Sixty-three year old Don Hohman was one of 50 people held in captivity from November 1979 until January 1981.
Hohman says Iran was never held responsible for taking the hostages, but with the country in the news again it's a good time to hold Iran accountable.
Hohman wants Congress to pass a bill providing compensation to hostages and their families.
Under the act, the United States would take money out of Iran's frozen assets still under control of the U.S. Sectretary of Treasury.
