Sajjad challenges Ahmadinejad to a debate

PR 72 September 19, 2010

Sajjad Ghaderzadeh, son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani:

Open letter to the honorable editors of the ABC News Network,

I challenge Mr. Ahmadinejad to a debate on your network.

This morning, Sunday, September 19, we read from various Iranian news networks that Mr. Ahmadinejad has commented about the case of our mother, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, and in the face of the world has made statements that contain not a shred of truth. This saddens me, as if we have occupied ourselves and endeavored to save our mother's life and end this horrendous nightmare out of boredom or not having anything better to do. For peoples' information, we will publish documents of our mother's stoning sentence, issued by the offices that work under Mr. Ahmadinejad's presidency, so the world can judge his words objectively.

We humbly ask your honorable network to arrange for a live broadcast discussion between Mr. Ahmadinejad and I on these issues, so that he can answer questions about his statements and uncertainties regarding our mother's case. Once again, I demand that our innocent mother be released.

Sajjad Ghaderzadeh,
son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani,
September 19, 2010

  1. I sent the following e-mail to all departments of ABC news Network:

    I'm writing to ask ABC News Network to arrange a debate this week between Iranian President Ahmadinejad and Sajjad Ghaderzadeh, son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, whom Iran sentenced to death by stoning.

    The truth about Iran's brutality must come out while Ahmadinejad is in New York. It can no longer be ignored. Please see Mr. Ghaderzadeh's open letter to the ABC News Network below:

    Thank you in advance.
