Here I would show News to the online petition against the death penalty any time by Mrs. Rayhaneh Jabbari (in Iran)! It was because of self-defense (She had stabbed a sex offender when he tried to rape her) sentenced to death.
Here is the amnesty report:
Here is the Amnesty Report:
Reyhaneh Jabbari’s mother said in a Facebook post on 29 September that her daughter had called her to say that she was being transferred from Gharchak Prison in the county of Varamin, Tehran Province, to Raja’i Shahr Prison to be executed early the next morning. Her mother contacted the Raja’i Shahr Prison authorities, who confirmed the scheduled execution and said she would have to go to the facility on 30 September to “collect the body”. Her execution was, however, postponed and she was returned to Gharchak Prison that same day at 11.30pm, possibly in response to the public outcry after her mother’s post about her scheduled execution.
Reyhaneh Jabbari, aged 26, was arrested in 2007 in relation to the killing a former employee of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence, Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi. She was held in solitary confinement, without access to her lawyer and family for two months during which she said she was tortured or otherwise ill-treated . Amnesty International understands that, at the outset of the investigation, Reyhaneh Jabbari admitted to stabbing the man once in the back, but claimed she had done so after he had tried to sexually abuse her. She also maintained that a third person in the house had been involved in the killing. These claims, if proven, could exonerate her but are believed never to have been properly investigated, raising many questions about the circumstances of the killing. Reyhaneh Jabbari was sentenced to death under qesas (retribution-in-kind) by a criminal court in Tehran in 2009. The death sentence was upheld by the Supreme Court in March 2014. Her sentence was then sent to the Office of Implementation of Sentences in Tehran, allowing the family of the dead man to request her execution at any time.
