Subject: Please continue your support of Sakinehâs case by writing to the Iranian authorities

I am gravely concerned about the fate of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. On 4 August, Branch 9 of the Supreme Court in Iran began a review of Ms. Ashtiani's sentence and agreed to consider a judicial review of the case, submitted by her lawyer.

I appeal to you to formally reverse the death sentence imposed on Ms. Ashtiani whether by stoning or other forms of punishment, and to release Ms. Ashtiani from prison immediately.

I ask you to Commit to end the death penalty in Iran and to enact legislation that bans stoning as a punishment, either by civil or any other courts in Iran, and that would not permit the use of other forms of the death penalty or flogging or imprisonment for those convicted of âadulteryâ or other crimes. Please end the criminalization of consensual sexual relations.

I urge you to ensure Ms. Ashtianiâs sonâs security by guaranteeing his right not to be harassed and upholding his right to express his concerns regarding the plight of his mother and to represent her case to the public.
