Urgent Action: Iran

Call to save the life of lawyer Houtan Kian and Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani

2 March 2011

The Islamic Republic of Iran has sentenced Houtan Kian, the lawyer of Iran stoning case Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, to death by hanging. He had received four consecutive death sentences. Three were revoked; the fourth has been upheld. Reliable reports received by the International Committee against Stoning confirm this fact.

Houtan Kian was arrested in October 2010 along with Sajjad Ghaderzadeh, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s son, and two German journalists during an interview. Whilst the latter three have been released, Houtan Kian faces imminent execution. Moreover Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s death sentence has been confirmed. Upon hearing the news, it is reported that Sakineh attempted suicide but survived.

We are outraged at these heinous sentences of death and are calling for urgent action to stop their executions and secure their immediate and unconditional release. They have done nothing wrong. Houtan Kian’s only crime has been to defend a woman facing death by stoning. Sakineh’s only crime has been to be a woman in the Islamic Republic of Iran and under Sharia law.

Only strong international pressure will and must save them and the many others awaiting their death in the execution capital of the world.

Mina Ahadi, Coordinator of the International Committees against Stoning and Execution

Patty Debonitas, Spokesperson of Iran Solidarity

Maryam Namazie, Spokesperson of One Law for All
