According to news sent to the International Committees against Execution and Stoning, responsible parties within Tabriz prison have told Mrs. Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani that she is not allowed visits with her children or her lawyer.

Today, as last week, Sakineh’s children have not been allowed to visit their mother. Prison authorities have informed them that their mother is no longer allowed to have contact with the outside world.

According to other received news, Mr. Houtan Kian, Mrs. Ashtiani’s lawyer, is also under increasingly intense pressure.

The International Committees against Execution and Stoning condemn this attitude of the Islamic Republic and call upon the people of the world to increase their efforts to free Sakineh. Every reaction by the Islamic Republic bears a sign of the savagery of this regime, indicates the inhuman judiciary system, indicates that people of Iran are utterly bereft of their rights, and at the same time indicates the weakness and desperation of this regime in the face of increasing international pressure.

  1. Are you saying that Sakineh and her family have no right to defend her? And that people worldwide do not have the right to come her defence. You seem to have forgotten that it is the regime that has put her in danger. I suppose that is not surprising for someone (anonymous at that!) who is more concerned at saving face for the regime and the 'pro-regime opposition,' than saving Sakineh.

  2. What are you doing!!!? You don't rescue her life, you just put her more danger. Are you fighting Mr. Mohammad Mostafaei with abusing Sakine's situation or what!!!
