Sajjad Asks Municipalities around the World to Help Free His Mother
In a letter that Sajjad Ghaderzadeh has written on September 26, he has sought support from municipalities worldwide in demanding his mother’s release.
In this letter, Sajjad thanks individuals and organizations who have worked to save his mother. He has also written, “I thank the municipalities of Rome and Florence in Italy, for they endeavored to save my innocent mother. I ask all municipalities in the different capitals of the world, in a unified effort, to protest against the Islamic Republic’s sentence against my innocent mother, and to demand a commutation of the execution and stoning sentence against my mother.”
We hope that municipalities respond to Sajjad’s request, and that we witness a broad movement by municipalities throughout the world.
Sakineh is still under threat of execution, and judiciary officials have said that they will make a final decision in Sakineh’s case in 2 weeks.
The International Campaign to Save Sakineh must continue with full force: the Islamic Republic should be pressured more intensively until it is forced to free Sakineh.
