According to Etemad newspaper today and AFP, two Iranian sisters – Zohreh, 27, and Azar (no age given) have been convicted of ‘adultery’ and been sentenced to death by stoning. This conviction follows another one in which they were first convicted of ‘illegal relations’ and lashed 99 times.
According to the article, the two ‘admitted’ they were in the video presented by one of their husband’s but argued that there was no adultery as none of the footage showed them engaged in a sexual act with the other men.
Show your outrage at this barbarity by organising protests at the embassies of the Islamic regime of Iran and or sending letters of protest demanding the:
* Immediate release of Zohreh and Azar
* Immediate abolition of stoning and the death penalty
