[Ed. – Which justice is this, Persian or Islamic?]
The Islamic Republic of Iran executed Reyhaneh Jabbari on Saturday by hanging, despite the international outcry against the execution.
Jabbari (26) was accused of killing her rapist, Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a member of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence.
Jabbari was hung [sic] at Gohardasht Prison, north of Karaj.
The case attracted worldwide attention after she was arrested in 2007 for the murder of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, the attacker who she stabbed with a penknife as he allegedly drugged and tried to rape her.
The prosecution’s case against her has been highly questioned, and her lawyers said she was not given a fair trial, which is far from surprising. There was also an open question whether it was actually someone else who killed him and not Jabbari with a penknife. …
Iranian news sources reported last month that Iran would have cancelled the execution if Sarbandi’s family had forgiven her.
