Please Help To Save Kobra Rahmanpour, A 22-Year-Old Woman From Execution

Execution of Kobra Rahmanpour has been set to be carried out on April 15, 2005 we have got less than three weeks to save her.

Kobra Rahmanpour is a 22 year old woman, currently under the treat of being hanged by the Islamic regime of Iran. She had spent the past three years in prison and been convicted of murdering her mother in law by a kitchen knife. On the first of January this year she was woken up early in the morning to be told that she was going to be hanged that day. But the international pressure delayed her execution.

Kobra herself is a victim of poverty and injustice. She was born and raised in a family that could not even provide the mere necessities of life for its members. Her father is elderly and one of her brothers is disabled and there is no welfare system to look after such people who are in need. Kobra had to give up her ambitions of going to university, and in order to help her family survive, married a man 40 years her senior. But her life did not get better; in fact it was made hell by repeated maltreatment and abuse se received from her husband and his family.

In one occasion he was even arrested and imprisoned for physically and sexually abusing her. In the last incident according to Kobra, she was attacked by her mother in law with a kitchen knife in her hand. Kobra claims that she killed her mother in law in a self-defense act.

Kora Rahmanpour’s life and misery is not unique. She is one of thousands and even millions of young people in particular young women whose lives, youth and ambitions are ruined in the hands of Islamic regime. The Iranian authorities are not fit to prosecute someone like Kobra. They themselves are the worst criminals in the world. They should be tried for the terrible hell they have created for people in Iran.

Execution for whatever reason is an inhuman act and the Iranian government has got a record in this filed. For the sake of justice we must save Kobra Rahmanour.
By signing this petition you will help us in our campaign to make Iranian authorities withdraw the hanging sentence of Kobra!
