Washington, DC — Members of the press are invited to attend a press conference with Congresswoman Tenney, a bipartisan group of House Members, and Ryan Corbett’s wife, Anna Corbett, on Wednesday, January 17, 2023. They will discuss the Taliban’s unjust detainment of Ryan Corbett and a Resolution being introduced in the House of Representatives calling for Ryan’s safe return home.

Ryan Corbett, a husband, father, and Western New Yorker has been held without charge by the Taliban in Afghanistan since August 10, 2022. Ryan is held in a basement cell without regular access to a bathroom, sunlight, or medical care. Other Westerners who have been released from the prison where Ryan is being held report that he is in deteriorating health. Ryan’s family has been fighting for his release in silence but decided to go public because of fears for his life.

Tenney is introducing the Ryan Corbett Resolution, calling for the immediate release of Ryan Corbett, a United States citizen who was wrongfully detained by the Taliban on August 10, 2022, and condemning the wrongful detention of Americans by the Taliban. View the text of the resolution here.
