Iran: Reyhaneh Jabbari’s memory lives on forever through her statuePublished by International Liberty Association on October 25, 2016
A well-known and decorated sculptor has created a magnificent statue of martyred Reyhaneh Jabbari in France to dedicate it to the movement against execution in Iran.
Mr. Reza Olia, sculptor and member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran has done a number of famous art works and has set up an exhibition in Paris.
Miss Reyhaneh Jabbari, 19, young art student was lured in to an office under the pretext of working on a new decoration work for that office. But she soon found out that the man who had asked her assistance (an officer from the intelligence ministry) had the intention to rape her.
Reyhaneh Jabbari was hanged about 6 years after this incident for killing that man in a self-defence and in order to preserve her dignity.
Her name and this evil execution captured the world attention and numerous human rights organizations including Amnesty International and UN’s human rights rapporteur condemned this act of murdering an innocent young girl.
