Iran: Reyhaneh Jabbari’s memory lives on forever through her statue

Published by on October 25, 2016

the-statue-of-reyhaneh-jabbariA 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.

Abolish death penalty in Iran

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
