Penalty
IRAN Jalal al-Din Farsi
Amnesty International has learned that the Supreme Court has revoked the initial
death sentence against Jalal al-Din Farsi. His case will again be brought
before a public court in Tehran for further evaluation. Jalal al-Din Farsi
was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in January 1996 by a court in
Tehran. In an earlier trial, he had been convicted of manslaughter, but the
Supreme Court had ordered a retrial.
FURTHER RECOMMENDED ACTION: Please send telegrams/telexes/faxes/express/
airmail letters in English, French or your own language:
- welcoming the decision of the Supreme Court to revoke the death sentence
against Jalal al-Din Farsi;
- urging that any further review of his case rule out the death penalty as
punishment;
- drawing attention to world trends to abolish or reduce the use of the death
penalty, the desirability of which was reaffirmed in Resolution 32/61 of 8
