Nazanin: Repeat Post….Why you ask? Cause This Is IMPORTANT

 I have already posted on this issue……but this needs to be brought to people's attention……

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.

A recent visitor to this blog…..Robb….also left a link to this site.  Please visit, sign the petition, and consider trying to help save this young womans life.
