URGENT: Reyhaneh Jabbari at Imminent Danger of Execution

Shole Pakravan, Reyhaneh's mother, has been told to visit her daughter for the last time before the execution. Iran Human Rights urges the international community to react before it is too late.   Iran Human Rights, October 24, 2014: "They called from the prison office now. Told me to go to an address they gave me for the last visit. She (Reyhaneh) will be transferred tonight. Tomorrow is set for her execution". Shole Pakravan, Reyhaneh Jabbari's mother, wrote these phrases on her Facebook page at about 4 pm Tehran time.  The 26 year old Iranian woman Reyhaneh Jabbari was sentenced to "qesas" (retribution in kind) for allegedly subbing a former intelligence officer, Morteza Sarbandi, seven years ago.

Reyhaneh has later said that she stubbed him in self defence. Reyhaneh was scheduled to be executed on September 29, but her execution was postponed. IHR urges the international community to react to stop Reyhaneh's execution. Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam said: "Rehyaneh Jabbari has been subjected to unfair trial and her execution is against Iran's international obligations and must be stopped. We ask the UN, EU and all countries with diplomatic relations with Iran to use all their channels to stop Reyhaneh's execution".   Reyhaneh Jabbari, aged 26, was arrested in 2007 for the murder of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former employee of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence. Following her arrest, Reyhaneh Jabbari was held in solitary confinement for two months in Tehran’s Evin Prison, where she did not have access to a lawyer or her family. Reyhaneh  confessed that to the murder immediately after her arrest, though she did not have a lawyer present at the time she made her confession. She stated that the murder took place in self-defence. Reyhaneh Jabbari was sentenced to death under  qesas (“retribution-in-kind”) by a criminal court in Tehran in 2009. The death sentence was upheld by the Supreme Court the same year. Reyhaneh's case has attracted much attention inside and outside Iran  and her scheduled execution has been postponed twice on April 15 and September 29 .
