Iran: Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani's still faces death sentence while Brazil makes formal offer of asylum
Update: Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani's still faces death sentence while Brazil makes formal offer of asylum
SKSW and WLUML are still gravely concerned about the fate of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. On 4 August, Branch 9 of the Supreme Court in Iran began a review of Mohammadi Ashtiani's sentence and agreed to consider a judicial review of the case, submitted by her lawyer. The Supreme Court is expected to either accept or reject the judicial review on or around 15 August. The review appears aimed solely at reducing international pressure on the authorities, by deferring a decision on the method of execution and the stoning sentence remains in place.
