Nazanin

Nazanin to be hanged

While I was getting ready for work this morning, I was watching the local news, as I do every morning….

That is where I saw an interview with a woman named Nazanin who is trying to save the life of another woman by the same name in Iran……

On January 3, 2006…. 18 year old Nazanin was sentenced to death for murder by an Iranian court.  She had admitted to fatally stabbing one of three men who were attempting to rape her and her 16 year old niece in March of 2005.

Her sentence is subject to review by the Court of Appeal.  The Iranian Penal Code limits the use of self defense as a defense against aggresion, but then if Nazanin had allowed the rape to take place, she could also have been convicted of having sex outside of marriage, unless 4 male witnesses to the act of rape would testify to her behalf.

If you would like to sign the online petition to try to save Nazanin's life, please go HERE .

This petition is directed to The Secretary General of the United Nations ~ Kofi Annan, The United Nations High Commissioner of Human Rights ~ Louise Arbour, The Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran ~ Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, and The Head of the Judiciary of IRI ~ Ayatollah Mahmoud Has.
