Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani faces a horrible punishment for an act of nature: sex. But apparently sex outside of marriage is volatile enough that this woman deserves to be executed by stoning. At least some people in Iran think so

Letter from the Children of Sakine Mohammadi: Protest Against our Mother’s Stoning

Do not allow our nightmare become a reality,
Protest against our mother’s stoning!

Today we stretch out our hands to the people of the whole world. It is now five years that we have lived in fear and in horror, deprived of motherly love. Is the world so cruel that it can watch this catastrophe and do nothing about it?

We are Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani’s children, Fasride and Sajjad Mohamamadi e Ashtiani. Since our childhood we have been acquainted with the pain of knowing that our mother is imprisoned and awaiting a catastrophe. To tell the truth, the term “stoning” is so horrific that we try never to use it. We instead say our mother is in danger, she might be killed, and she deserves everyone’s help.

Today, when nearly all options have reached dead-ends, and our mother’s lawyer says that she is in a dangerous situation, we resort to you. We resort to the people of the world, no matter who you are and where in the world you live. We resort to you, people of Iran, all of you who have experienced the pain and anguish of the horror of losing a loved one.

Please help our mother return home!

We especially stretch our hand out to the Iranians living abroad. Help to prevent this nightmare from becoming reality. Save our mother. We are unable to explain the anguish of every moment, every second of our lives. Words are unable to articulate our fear…

Help to save our mother. Write to and ask officials to free her. Tell them that she doesn’t have a civil complainant and has not done any wrong. Our mother should not be killed. Is there any one hearing this and rushing to our assistance?

SAMPLE LETTER TO NAVI PILLAY, UN High Commissioner for the Office of Human Rights:

Send to: npillay@ohchr.org, with copies to: urgent-action@ohchr.org, Iran_team@amnesty.org, saneif@hrw.org

Dear Ms. Pillay,

I am writing to you with an urgent demand that you intervene with the authorities in the Islamic Republic of Iran, who are preparing to execute by stoning Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani. Stoning is a barbaric form of torture and execution that should be outlawed worldwide. It is your responsibility to step in and demand a halt to these proceedings.

The children of Ms. Mohammadi e Ashtiana have written a letter in her defense, and have issued a call to the world asking for help. Their letter is here; I suggest you read it, and then act according to their heartrending demands.

SAMPLE LETTER TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE OF THE RED CROSS:

Send to: Florian Westphal (fwestphal@icrc.org) and Dorothea Krimitsas (dkrimitsas@icrc.org)

Dear Ms. Westphal and Ms. Krimitsas,

I am writing to you with an urgent request that you intervene with the authorities in the Islamic Republic of Iran, who are preparing to execute by stoning Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani. Stoning is a barbaric form of torture and execution that should be outlawed worldwide. Multilateral organizations have thus far refused to step in and put a halt to the criminal actions perpetrated by the Islamic Republic. Your mandate encourages your organization to undertake the work of visiting prisoners in situations of internal violence, where the Geneva Conventions do not apply. I ask you to step in and demand a halt to these and other ongoing criminal and barbaric proceedings in the Islamic Republic

The children of Ms. Mohammadi e Ashtiana have written a letter in her defense, and have issued a call to the world asking for help. Their letter is here; please read it, and then act according to their heartrending demands.

Has anyone paid attention to the Photo?

There are many rumors on the internet. Similar stories in the past had been proven as "hoax."

Take another look at the "photo-shopped" picture. The person, who is supposedly being stoned to death has red markings on the face but the head-dress is intact - no rips or tears, clean and without the slightest spec of dirt on it. her face is not even slightly swollen - or damaged.

Strange, isn't it?

And the person herself is still "standing" - if she was stoned to death, wouldn't her upper torso be slumped over?

Indymedia 01 July 2010

Amnesty International has made a new call on the Iranian authorities to immediately halt all executions and commute all death sentences as concern grows about two women and other prisoners who may be at imminent risk of execution.

The organisation is also urging the authorities to review and repeal death penalty laws, to disclose full details of all death sentences and executions, and to join the growing international trend towards abolition.

Two women are feared to be at imminent risk of execution. Zeynab Jalalian, a political activist and member of the Kurdish minority, was sentenced to death in early 2009 after being convicted of “enmity against God”, while Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who has two children, could be executed by stoning at any time for “adultery while being married".

Currently held in Evin Prison, Tehran, Zeynab Jalalian, an Iranian Kurd, was arrested in 2007. Unconfirmed reports are circulating widely that her execution may take place any day. She was convicted in or around January 2009 of “enmity against God” in connection with her alleged membership of a Kurdish armed opposition group. She has said she was tortured. She is reported to have been denied access to her lawyer during her trial, which reportedly lasted only a few minutes and during which no evidence was produced against her. Zeynab Jalalian’s death sentence was upheld on appeal and confirmed by Iran’s Supreme Court on 26 November 2009. Her family has received no news of her for a month and has been told by the authorities that her case file has been “lost”.

On 13 June, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s lawyer, Mohammad Mostafaei, published an article entitled Sakineh on the threshold of stoning and pointed out that there is now no legal obstacle to her execution being carried out at any time. In May 2006 she was convicted of having had an “illicit relationship” with two men and received 99 lashes as her sentence. Despite this, she was subsequently convicted of “adultery while being married", which she has denied, and was sentenced to death by stoning.

Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has retracted a “confession” made during interrogation, stating that it was made under duress. However, she was convicted by a majority of three out of five trial judges on the basis of the “knowledge of the judge”, a provision in Iranian law that allows judges to make their own subjective and possibly arbitrary determination regarding guilt even in the absence of clear or conclusive evidence.

Her death sentence was confirmed by the Supreme Court on 27 May 2007. Her case has been sent to Iran’s Amnesty and Clemency Commission twice, but her request for clemency was rejected on both occasions..

Background
Prisoners on death row are often not informed when they are due to be executed until the last minute, adding to their suffering and that of their families. Sometimes their lawyers are not informed 48 hours in advance, as is required by Iranian law.

Others prisoners under sentence of death include two members of the predominantly Sunni Muslim Baluch minority in Sistan-Baluchistan province. On 31 May 2010, the Zahedan Prosecutor said they had been sentenced to death for their alleged involvement in clashes between Sunni and Shi’a Muslims which led to the deaths of six individuals. He also said that the death penalty has been sought in the trials of six other individuals. The clashes followed a bomb attack on a Shi’a mosque in May 2009, which killed at least 25 individuals, which was claimed by the People’s Resistance Movement of Iran (PRMI), an armed Baluch group opposed to the Iranian government.

The PRMI’s leader, Abdolmalek Rigi, was hanged by the Iranian authorities on 20 June 2010, in Zahedan. His brother, Abdolhamid Rigi, was hanged in Zahedan in May 2010.

In Kordestan province, home to many members of the Kurdish minority, a government official said on 27 June 2010 that at least 20 prisoners were being held on death row there who had been convicted of drug smuggling. At least 15 other members of the Kurdish minority, all political prisoners, are also on death row in the province and are at risk of execution. Two are said to be facing execution by firing squad. Most executions in Iran are carried out by hanging.

Many prisoners on death row did not receive fair trials, having been sentenced on the basis of vaguely-worded charges and “confessions” which they allege were made under torture or other duress while they were detained incommunicado before trial. Some were denied access to a lawyer.

Despite these grave shortcomings, the Iranian authorities continue to carry out more executions than most other states. This year, Amnesty International recorded no less than 126 executions in the period from 1 January to 6 June. Those hanged included five political prisoners who were executed on 9 May; the authorities may have intended the executions as a warning to potential protestors in advance of the anniversary on 12 June of the hotly disputed presidential election of 2009, which sparked mass protests and a wave of state repression.

Amnesty International opposes the death penalty in all cases as a violation of the right to life and the ultimate form of cruel and inhuman punishment. In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling for a worldwide moratorium on executions. Iran was one of the minority of states that voted against the resolution.

I found a site about the film "The Stoning of Soraya M." (2008) and the comment:
"However, one hopes the film is not mistaken for a denunciation of Iran at a time when U.S.-Iranian relations remain strained. The film should renew outcry against not only death by stoning, but also death by lethal injection, fire squad, and electric chair. We must abolish the death penalty in all its nefarious forms whether in the remote, landlocked corners of Iran or in the sanitized charnel houses of the United States.



Warbling sound to foretell tragedy and depicting brutality with the same gruesome attentiveness as "The Passion of the Christ", the film aims to arouse moviegoers' furor. Yet, let us not forget that international human rights groups have long lambasted the use of the death penalty not only in Iran but across the world. Let us hope that Stoning reignites global protests against the arrogance and inhumanity of the death penalty everywhere.



In Iran, women disproportionately suffer from executions by stoning; in the United States, the poor and the non-white disproportionately receive death sentences. As Amnesty International notes, "by working towards the abolition of the death penalty worldwide, Amnesty International USA's Death Penalty Abolition Campaign looks to end the cycle of violence created by a system riddled with economic and racial bias and tainted by human error." While the U.S. has sanitized the horror of killing people through lethal injections and electric chairs, it has not washed its hands of the accompanying guilt. Iran must unequivocally renounce the barbaric act of stoning people to death, and the U.S. must similarly make a commitment against destroying human life. "

Yesterday a massive global outcry stopped an Iranian woman, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, from being stoned to death.

But Sakineh still faces hanging, and today, fifteen more people await execution by stoning -- people are buried up to their necks and large rocks are hurled at their heads.

Sakineh's brave children's international campaign shows that worldwide condemnation works. Let's turn this family's desperate appeal into a movement that ends stoning for good - sign the petition and send to everyone:


http://www.avaaz.org/en/stop_stoning/?cl=652366986&v=6766

ATW might be interested to see the photo and caption on this petition. It's the same photo as on this article, but with more background, with the caption -

"An Iranian woman at a protest in Brussels highlights the barbarity of death by stoning, in which women are buried up to their necks in front of a crowd of volunteers."

Urgent Action Required/Global Campaign: We Are All Shiva Take Action: Iranian Journalist & Human Rights Activist, Shiva Nazar-Ahari, 26, Risks Death Penalty - Trial Opened & Closed Today Hmmm...that WAS fast...but she hasn't yet been sentenced !

AMNESTY: URGENT ACTION - JOURNALIST & HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDER MAY FACE DEATH PENALTY Shiva Nazar Ahari risks death penalty for 'Moharebeh'- warring against God. 1st time in history journalists have been charged with this capital crime - a number of them so charged. Shiva, a member of the Iranian organization, the Committee of Human Rights Reporters (CHRR), has been detained since 20 December 2009, in solitary confinement for much of the time. In February 2010 she told her family by phone that she had been placed in a "cage-like" solitary confinement cell where she could not move her arms and legs. She has had only limited access to her family. She is a prisoner of conscience, held solely for the peaceful exercise of her rights to freedom of expression and association.

I love how Wahhabist inspired Islam tries to point out how decadent we 'westerners' are. While I agree that we aren't perfect and that we have a number of things that we have to work on, as bad as it may be here, it is worse, sometimes MUCH worse in other parts of the world; with THIS being a prime example! Such level of misogyny is rampant throughout the Muslim world. If the "Muslim world" is to EVER gain some level of respect, it must shed itself of the misogynistic attitudes and demagoguery which plague it. Set this woman free!

1 November 2010 - The Islamic regime of Iran plans to execute Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani immediately

According to news received by the International Committee against Stoning and International Committee against Execution on 1 November 2010, the authorities in Tehran have given the go ahead to Tabriz prison for the execution of Iran stoning case Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. It has been reported that she is to be executed this Wednesday 3 November.

We had previously reported that the casefile regarding the murder case of Ms Ashtiani’s husband had been seized from her lawyer’s office, Houtan Kian, and found missing from the prosecutor’s Oskoo branch office so as to stitch Ms Ashtiani up with trumped up murder charges. Ms Ashtiani’s son, Sajjad Ghaderzadeh, and her lawyer, Houtan Kian, have warned of the regime’s plan to do so on many occasions. With the arrest of Ms Ashtiani’s son and lawyer on 10 October and her not having had any visitation rights since 11 August and after fabricating a new case against her, the “Human Rights Commission” of the regime has announced that: ‘according to the existing evidence, her guilt has been confirmed.’ In fact, the regime has created a new scenario in order to expedite her execution.

The International Committees against Stoning and Execution call on international bodies and the people of the world to come out in full force against the state-sponsored murder of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. Ms Ashtiani, Sajjad Ghaderzadeh, Houtan Kian and the two German journalists must be immediately and unconditionally released.


Press Release 82 (http://stopstonningnow.com/wpress/4193)

Extracts: According to information obtained by the International Committees against stoning and executions, Sajjad, the son of Sakineh, and Houtan Kian, her lawyer, are subjected to pressure & severe torture in a prison of Tabriz.

According to our sources, Houtan & the two German journalists, who at the time of arrest were interviewing Sakineh's son, were transferred to Tabriz prison on Tuesday October 26, 16 days after their arrest. The whereabouts of Sajjad remain unknown.

Our sources suggest that Sajjad, particularly during his first days of detention, was severely tortured, and that Houtan was harassed & beaten. Their interrogations have mainly been about their contacts with foreign media networks and the Campaign to Save Sakineh. ...

The International Committees against Execution and Stoning call upon all international humanitarian institutions, organizations, and people who have participated in the Campaign to Save Sakineh to condemn the Islamic regime for savagery and crime against these innocent people, and ask that they intensify their activities to free Sakineh, Sajjad, Houtan and the two German journalists.

Btw, for the skeptic who thinks this may all be a hoax -- the woman isn't slumped over because she is buried in the ground up to her armpits -- this is done on purpose, so that the person cannot slump despite the blows.
