A woman was executed!


On Sunday, July 19, 2009, Human Rights Activists News Agency reported:

A woman; who four years ago had unintentionally killed her father-in-law in the course of a family dispute, was executed last Tuesday morning in Qazvin prison’s facilities for women.

For the past four years, the aforesaid woman was incarcerated on the charge of intentional murder, but because of being financially destitute and unable to hire a lawyer she was not able to prove that the death was unintentional.  Therefore, the court convicted her to death based on the law of “equal punishment”.  When the family of the deceased man refused to forgive her, the court order (execution) was carried out last Tuesday.

    I’m so sorry! So overwelmed to hear that they actually did this. The wonman of this world must have a great great place in heaven because we have suffered so much by the hands of man. where was the man who said I love you, please be my wife! You are a coward and have never been a real man. No no woman should come near you ever again!

    This is a sad story all around. I don’t know all of the facts, and being in a country (U.S.) where we do have capitol punishment I am in no place to judge another country’s action. I can only hope judicial systems worldwide know all the facts before taking such steps as execution.
