IRAN SENTENCES TWO TO DEATH
April 30, 2010: in Iran, Tehran lawyer Nasim Ghanavi told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that a Tehran appeals court upheld the death sentence of her client Ja'far Kazemi and another protester Mohammadali Haj-Agha'i.
"These sentences were passed despite an utter lack of evidence justifying any punishment. Now the appeals judges are disregarding Iran's own laws and international obligations by rubber stamping these horrifying sentences," said Hadi Ghaemi, the Campaign's spokesperson. (Sources: BBC, 02/05/2010)
