Six Years Prison for Unpublished Story about Stoning

By John Lee.

Amnesty International has called for Iranian authorities to immediately repeal the conviction and six-year prison sentence of Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee for the writing of an unpublished story about the practice of stoning.

The charges against Golrokh Ebrahimi Iraee are ludicrous. She is facing years behind bars simply for writing a story, and one which was not even published – she is effectively being punished for using her imagination,” said Philip Luther, Research and Advocacy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International.
