Good News!  Iranian woman saved from execution

There has been a world wide campaign to stop the Iranian authorities from executing Zeinab Lokran.

We have received a message from Amnesty which says

By standing up to the Iranian authorities, you have helped to keep 22-year-old Zeinab alive. Thank you for defending her right to life.

Her execution, which was scheduled to go ahead as early as 13 October is no longer imminent. Zeinab now has a new lawyer working on her case. Together they will submit an application for a retrial – which is Zeinab’s right under Article 91 of Iran’s Islamic Penal Code.

While this is extremely good news, her death sentence remains in place until a retrial is granted by the authorities.

Please share: Continue to put pressure on Iranian authorities not to execute Zeinab
