The organization for the defense of human rights in Kurdistan
Shamameh (Malak) Ghorbani, is a 34-year-old woman from the suburbs of the town of Naqdeh (province of Kurdistan); she is a mother of two children, a girl named Someyeh and a son, Ahmad; Shamameh was charged with in June of 2005 and was jailed. Within the recent weeks however the Islamic court in the city of Orumiyeh has re-sentenced her to execution through stoning.
Shamameh has been abandoned by her family and now alone and without anyone to turn to, has fallen victim to the barbarous and mysoginist Islamic laws. The organization for the defense of human rights in Kurdistan welcomes her as its honorary member and has begun a campaign to save her life. This organization calls upon the Islamic republic of Iran’s judiciary, the office of the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights as well as other human rights NGO’s to have this verdict overturned.
