PostSubject: Stop stoning in Iran !   Sat Aug 26, 2006 3:16 pm

Articles received by ICAHK (International Campaign Against Honour Killings) indicate that a number of women are facing execution by stoning in Iran.


There are two petitions online to save two women from death by stoning.

Save Malak Ghorbany
On June 28, 2006, a court in the northwestern Iranian city of Urmia sentenced Malak Ghorbany to death for committing "adultery."
Please sign the petition there :

Update July 22: In response to international pressure opposing the public stoning of Malak Ghorbany, and the barbaric punishment of women by stoning in general, the Iranian Embassy in France has announced that Malak Ghorbany's case is being re-evaluated, and her original sentence (public stoning for committing adultery) is expected to be revised. However, DO NOT think that everything is all right now. Malak may still be re-sentenced to death or tortured in prison. We must keep the pressure up until she is free.

Save Ashraf Kalhori
Asharf Kalhori, who is currently in Evin prison in Tehran, is scheduled to be stoned to death by the end of July 2006 for the crime of having "sex".

Update August 13: The execution of Ashraf has been stopped by Ayatollah Shahroudi after pressure from both within Iran and from the rest of the world. Unfortunately this is just a temporarely halt, and we don't know whether she can be stoned at a later time, or sentenced to another kind of capital punishment. Please keep up the pressure on the Iranian government !
