正式な結婚をせずに2人の子どもをもうけたことによりJa’far Kianiさんが処刑され、彼のパートナーであるMokarrameh Ebrahimiさんにも処刑の危機が迫っていることについて、アジア女性資料センターは19日、イラン大使館に下記のレターを送付しました。
19 July 2007
H. E. Mr. Mohsen TALAEI
Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Japan
3-13-9, Minami-Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo, 106-0047
Please immediately stop execution of Ms. Mokarrameh Ebrahimi
Asia-Japan Women’s Resource Center is shocked to learn the execution of Mr. Ja’far Kiani by stoning on 5 July 2007 and deeply concerned about the safety of his partner, Ms. Mokarrameh Ebrahimi, and their two children.
We believe that sentencing death penalty for adultery is too harsh and brutal punishment. It also violates the fundamental human rights laid out in the International Covenants on Human Rights, to which Islamic Republic of Iran is a State Party. We request the Authority of Iran to immediately stop planned execution of Ms. Mokarrameh Ebrahimi and repeal the death sentences passed on her, guaranteeing her physical and psychological integrity with her children. We also request the Iranian Authority to review the penalty for adultery in accordance with the international human rights and women’s rights treaties.
Thank you very much for your attention.
