Our mother is innocent and should be released unconditionally.
I ask the eight industrial countries and the governments of Turkey and Brazil and the entire world to continue the pressure against the Islamic Republic and don’t assume that the case is resolved.
Announcement made by Sajjad Ghaderzadeh, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s son, regarding the statement of the Press Secretary of the Islamic Republic’s Judiciary power about Sakineh and the regime’s Islamic human rights
Shahrivar 17, 1389
Regarding the statement of Mr. Ramin Mehmanparast, press secretary of the Judiciary power: as we have so far not received an official and legal document on stopping the stoning sentence and execution, we therefore do not accept these claims. They must issue us legal documents in this regard.
Regarding our mother’s statements, as the interview had not taken place in the presence of our lawyer Mr. Houtan Kian, but rather in the presence of Azad Press, we cannot confirm the [contents], as the circumstances surrounding this interview are not clear.
About beating up and maltreatment with regard to this interview, Mr. Kian has not received any news yet.
Regarding our mother saying that we have a weekly visit, the Islamic Republic must produce evidence that we visit our mother every week. Our name should be registered there to prove these people have been there to visit the inmate.
Regarding this statement, we, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s children, declare that our mother is innocent and should be freed by the Islamic Republic immediately and without any conditions.
I have an announcement to make to the world. I ask the eight industrial countries and Turkey and Brazil and the entire world to continue the pressure against Iran, and do not assume that the case is resolved. We do not have any official document. If the Islamic Republic is sincere, it should produce evidence.
Sajjad, son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani
