Trying to delay the inevitable.
Reyhaneh Jabbari, a 26 year-old interior designer was hired at the age of 19 by Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former employee of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security. According to Jabbari, she stabbed Sarbandi in self defense when he sexually assaulted her. Jabbari never received a fair trial and was put in prison, tortured and ultimately hung.
Even the UN’s human rights council which tried to save Jabbari from execution failed. The question remains if Jabbari was given a fair trial.
This situation is absurd. It appears that in 2014, Iran held the second highest record for execution of it’s citizens for various crimes (170 executions). The only country to exceed this number is China, who happens to sit on the UN Human Rights Council.
