Fatemeh Haghighat-Pajuh faces execution in Iran tomorrow

Press Release
November 25, 2008

Fatemeh Haghighat-Pajuh faces execution in Iran tomorrow for killing her husband, Bahman, when she found out he had attempted to rape her 15 year old daughter from a previous marriage.

Her daughters called Mina Ahadi of the International Committee against Executions today to ask for increased international support against the execution. Public pressure has been able to halt a previous execution date and can do so again.

The International Committee against Executions is calling on political parties, governments, organisations and individuals to contact the Islamic regime of Iran’s authorities and demand an immediate stay of execution.

For more information, contact Mina Ahadi at 00491775692413 or Maryam Namazie at 00447719166731.

    Oh no, Anthony, she was executed this morning. To hear the heartwrenching sobs and pleas of her daughter in Farsi on our live TV programme yesterday, click here: http://www.newchannel.tv/live/Upload_112508-live-keyvan-haqiqatpazho-itv.wmv.Everyone who called from Iran during this live programme and many others were against the death penalty.Irrespective of the pressure though we lost another woman to this vile regime today. My condolences to her lovely daughters and people everywhere.
