Press Release 20
At the same time that the international protests to free Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani are on the rise, Mohammad Mostafaei, the well-known lawyer in Tehran, has been summoned to the 2nd Branch of Shahid Moghaddas Court’s Interrogation Office in Evin Prison. Mostafaei has written in his personal website that he has been asked to present himself to that office within three days to give “some explanations.” “Some explanation” is nothing but threats and efforts by the regime to intimidate and silence the lawyers of those prisoners condemned to execution and stoning.
The International Committee against Execution strongly condemns this harassment and summons, and asks all Iranian people and people all around the world to protest against these acts of the Islamic Republic.
