Iran has imposed a media blackout over the case of a year-old mother of two who was sentenced to be stoned to death and whose fate is still unclear despite an apparent "reprieve". Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani is still facing execution by hanging after being convicted of adultery, her son told the Guardian today. Newspapers, agencies and TV channels in Iran have been banned from reporting Mohammadi Ashtiani's death sentence, despite an international campaign launched by her children, which has been ed by politicians and celebrities from all over the world.
The campaign, first highlighted by the Guardian last week, has failed to stop the Iranian authorities from pressing ahead. Last night the Iranian embassy in London issued an opaque statement saying that Mohammadi Ashtiani would not be stoned to death.
The statement was not reported inside Iran and neither was the news of stoning death sentences for 15 other Iranians. If they think that it [stoning to death] is an Islamic rule, why are they afraid of it so much? I think that the statement issued by Iran's embassy in London is just to calm down the situation. Once the outrage has cooled off, they might hang Sakineh instead. Iran has not stoned a woman to death since when the execution of Mahboubeh M sparked outcry in Iran. She had been forced to confess to adultery.
Mahboubeh's story became known only when an official witness of her death revealed that she had been buried alive up to her shoulders while the guards stoned her to death. Mohammadi Ashtiani's son, Sajad, 22, who began the campaign to save her, said the embassy's statement has not stopped him worrying for his mother. She's still on death row.
A prisoner reprieved before stoning may be hanged, as was the case for Abdollah Farivar in Farivar, convicted of "illicit relationship outside marriage", was initially sentenced to death by stoning but later hanged when a campaign for his case attracted worldwide attention.
