Iran: Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani: A life in the balance
Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has spent years expecting her life to be cruelly ended at any moment. Since 2006 she has faced execution by stoning, the sentence imposed unfairly after she was convicted of “adultery while married”. Her fate remains in the hands of an arbitrary and flawed justice system that has failed her from the start. In this document Amnesty International calls for an end to all executions in Iran and supports efforts by human rights defenders around the world to end the practice of stoning in Iran and elsewhere.
