ICAE Press Release, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani

ICAE Press Release #75: The Danger of Execution Is Still Hanging Over Sakineh’s Head

Mohsen Ejaei, spokesperson of the Judiciary power of the Islamic Republic of Iran, announced today, September 27, 2010, that Sakineh was sentenced to stoning as well as execution [for the fabricated murder charge invented by the regime], and that the punishment for murder [execution, most likely by hanging] takes priority over the punishment for adultery [stoning].

It is necessary to recall that on their recent trip to New York, Ahmadinejad and Mashaai, his Vice-President, had announced that a stoning sentence has never been handed down in Sakineh’s case.

We have previously published documents regarding Sakineh’s case in Tabriz court that clearly show there was never a trial in which Sakineh was accused of murder. After the pressure created by the international campaign against Sakineh’s stoning, the Islamic Republic’s judiciary officials stole all relevant documents and case files [regarding the murder of Sakineh’s husband] in order to be able to announce that Sakineh has been sentenced to execution [on the fabricated murder charge].

Every time they reiterate Sakineh’s punishment, it puts a devastating psychological pressure on Sakineh’s children, and consumes them with worry. Sajjad, in a new call to the whole world, has asked for his mother to be saved. We once again emphasize the necessity of a powerful continuation of the international effort to save Sakineh.
