Woman at risk of execution in Iran.  Horrific case.
Woman could be hanged within days for killing her abusive husband

Zeinab Sekaanvand Lokran

We attach an urgent action concerning a woman, Zeinab Sekaanvand Lokran in Iran who is at imminent risk of execution.  The story – which we hope you will find time to read – is pretty horrific involving torture and a stillborn child.  If you can write or email that would be appreciated.

She confessed to murdering her abusive husband, was denied access to a lawyer, beaten in a police station until she confessed and then lost her child due to shock. She has received no treatment or help after her miscarriage.
