SIAVOSH JALILI, PERSIAN2ENGLISH– For the third time nine days ago, the death sentence for Safieh Ghafouri (a.k.a. Maryam), a 28-year-old woman who has been imprisoned in Adel Abad prison in Shiraz since 2006, was supposed to be carried out. At the age of 22, Ghafouri was arrested and charged with murder. Recently, following the efforts of benevolent people and Ghafouri’s lawyers, judicial authorities agreed to postpone the execution order for 10 days to allow Ghafouri the opportunity to secure the consent of the victim’s family [to have her life spared]. The 10-day period ends on June 10, and there is a possibility that the execution order may be carried out if consent is not granted by the victim’s family or if an order is not obtained from the Head of Judiciary for a stay of execution. 

Even though the Iranian Supreme Court has agreed to hear Ghafouri’s appeal on the case, the Supreme Court has also stated that it will not proceed with the appeals hearing until Sadegh Larijani, the Head of the Iranian Judiciary, agrees to it. The Supreme Court explained that since Larijani had ordered the execution to be carried out, the stay of execution may only be possible if ordered through him. In the Iranian Judicial system, the highest authority lies with the Supreme Court. This means that if the Supreme Court agrees to hear a case, the execution sentence in that case must be stayed. Despite this, judicial officials have stated that Ghafouri’s execution can only be stayed if the order comes from Larijani.

هرانا؛ احتمال اجرای حکم اعدام صفیه غفوری (مریم) در زندان شیراز

شنبه 20 خرداد 1391 ساعت 17:20 |

خبرگزاری هرانا – با پایان مهلت ۱۰ روزه دستگاه قضایی کشور اجرای حکم اعدام صفیه غفوری زندانی متهم به قتل قریب الوقوع است.

بنا به اطلاع گزارشگران هرانا، ارگان خبری مجموعه فعالان حقوق بشر در ایران، صفیه غفوری (معروف به مریم) زن ۲۸ ساله‌ای است که از سال ۱۳۸۵ به اتهام قتل عمد در زندان عادل آباد شیراز محبوس است که در آستانه اعدام قرار دارد.

این زندانی که ۹ روز پیش جهت اجرای حکم فراخوانده شده بود با تلاش افراد خیر و وکلای وی، اجرای حکم ایشان برای مدت ده روز جهت جلب رضایت اولیا دم متوقف شد.

نامبرده در حالی برای چهارمین بار پای چوبه دار حاضر خواهد شد که دیوانعالی کشور درخواست رسیدگی مجدد به پرونده او را مورد پذیرش قرار داده، اما گفته می‌شود، پذیرش این درخواست موکول به نظر ریاست قوه قضاییه است و از آنجایی که رییس قوه قضاییه دستور به اجرای حکم اعدام وی را صادر نموده بود، توقف کامل اجرای حکم با دستور وی قابل اجراست.

بررسی موارد حقوقی نقض شده در این گزارش:

ماده ۳ اعلامیه جهانی حقوق بشر: هر فردی حق زندگی، آزادی و امنیت شخصی دارد.

بند ۱ ماده ۶ میثاق بین المللی حقوق مدنی و سیاسی: حق زندگی از حقوق ذاتی شخص انسان است. این حق باید بموجب قانون حمایت بشود. هیچ فردی را نمی‌توان خودسرانه از زندگی محروم کرد.

بند ۲ ماده ۱ دومین پروتکل اختیاری میثاق بین المللی حقوق سیاسی و مدنی به منظور الغای مجازات مرگ: کشور‌ها، تمام اقدامات لازم را در جهت منسوخ کردن مجازات مرگ در قلمرو قضائی خود، بعمل آورند.
