URGENT ACTION: Young Woman in Danger of Execution in Iran! | Persian2English

URGENT ACTION: Young Woman in Danger of Execution in Iran! | Persian2English | HumanRight | Scoop.it

PLEASE URGE THE UN & WORLD FOREIGN MINISTRIES TO SPEAK OUT BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!


For the third time nine days ago, the death sentence for Safieh Ghafouri (a.k.a. Maryam), a 28-year-old woman who has been imprisoned in Adel Abad prison in Shiraz since 2006, was supposed to be carried out. At the age of 22, Ghafouri was arrested and charged with murder. Recently, following the efforts of benevolent people and Ghafouri’s lawyers, judicial authorities agreed to postpone the execution order for 10 days to allow Ghafouri the opportunity to secure the consent of the victim’s family [to have her life spared]. The 10-day period ends on June 10, and there is a possibility that the execution order may be carried out if consent is not granted by the victim’s family or if an order is not obtained from the Head of Judiciary for a stay of execution.
