On Brazilian offer of asylum to Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani

Press Release no. 30
31 July 2010

Brazilian President Lula da Silva has called on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to accept an offer of asylum in Brazil for Iran stoning case Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and her children.

The International Committee against Executions and the International Committee against Stoning welcome any new developments that can save her precious life and reunite her with her children. We reiterate our call, however, for an end to stoning and executions altogether.
