Sentenced to death for adultery – the cruel face of iranian justice

Hi Ghazal,
Thanks for writing about the case of Mrs. Sakine Ashtiani in Teheran and the threat of her beeing killed by stoning. I did not knew about her, but what you wrote is shocking. I don”t know what is worth, shooting people at the Berlin Wall or killing an innocent woman by stoning (and having this “officialy” approved by a court sentence). I read that although the original court decision to stone Mrs. Ashtiani has been withdrawn, she still faces death penalty by hanging.
I found a website of an initiative to protest against this injustice, one can click here to sign a petition .


More information about this case is available in an article of the german newspaper FAZ and in the New York Times.
