Press Release No 31
Mehman Parast, spokesperson of the foreign ministry in Tehran, today rejected the offer made by the Brazilian president Lula da Silva to give asylum to Sakine Ashtiani and her children.
Ms Ashtiani had been given the news of the offer by her son Sajad yesterday and was very happy about it.
ICAS hopes that Lula da Silva and other heads of governments will continue their efforts to free Sakine Ashtiani.
The campaign to save Sakine continues and we will put pressure on the Islamic regime until she is freed.
