On 8 December 2010, the International Committee against Stoning received reports of the impending releases of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and Sajjad Ghaderzadeh.
On 9 December photographs of Sakineh and her son Sajjad were released by Press TV (one of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s media outlets) and was picked up by a number of international agencies. These have all made it seem as if they have been released.
The report of their release, however, has not been confirmed by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
It is important to note that there has been conflicting information on this issue in the Islamic Republic of Iran’s news agencies.
