Club of Madrid joins the appeal to demand a halt to the execution of Ms. Sakineh Ashtiani.

November 10, 2010

The IX General Assembly of the Club of Madrid, meeting on November 4, 2010, is deeply concerned by reports of the imminent execution of Ms. Sakineh Ashtiani. As members of the world's largest forum of democratic, former Heads of State and Government, we, the undersigned members of the Club of Madrid, join the appeal of many governments, international organizations and citizens to demand a halt to the execution of Ms. Sakineh Ashtiani.  We urge the Iranian authorities to rescind the execution order and act in accordance with all applicable protections under international Human Rights law.
