Your Veil Is a Battleground        USA        29 May 2012

 

Kiana Hayeri grew up in Tehran,

where the country’s morality police

restricted her public behavior.

 

She left in 2005

when she was 17 and moved to Toronto,

where she studied photography

at Ryerson University.

 

Ms. Hayeri returned to Iran in 2010

to explore the dual lives of many young women

who are expected to behave

and dress modestly in public

by covering their hair, arms and legs.

 

But behind closed doors,

these women act very much

like Ms. Hayeri’s Canadian friends

— dating, singing, studying ballet

and even swimming.

Rights Groups Condemn

Execution of Iranian Woman

 

OCT. 25, 2014

The New York Times

By THOMAS ERDBRINK

 

TEHRAN — An Iranian woman convicted of murder for killing a doctor she said had tried to rape her was executed on Saturday morning, despite international condemnation of what Western human rights organizations described as a miscarriage of justice and efforts by the Iranian president to commute her death sentence.

The woman, Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, admitted during her trial in 2009 that she had killed Dr. Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, 47, a physician and a former employee of the Ministry of Intelligence, but insisted that she had done so in self-defense.

The case attracted considerable attention in the West, where human rights organizations organized campaigns declaring Ms. Jabbari innocent of murder and said she was a symbol of injustice toward women. In Iran, where many distrust the hard-line judiciary, which is known for its mass trials and televised confessions, the case provoked much debate.

According to news reports about the trial, Ms. Jabbari, then 19, met Dr. Sarbandi in 2007 in an ice-cream parlor in Tehran, where he overheard her saying she worked as an interior designer. She made an appointment to visit his practice to assess a possible renovation, though what happened afterward is unclear. Some local websites say they saw each other a couple of other times before Dr. Sarbandi was killed on July 7.

That day, Ms. Jabbari had a knife in her bag, which she testified she had bought two days earlier for her protection. A police interrogator told the semiofficial news agency Mehr in August that the victim had been stabbed in the back while on his prayer rug and had collapsed while running down a staircase shouting, “Thief! Thief!” Ms. Jabbari was convicted of premeditated murder and sentenced to death.

The United Nations office for human rights said there was evidence that Ms. Jabbari’s conviction was based on a confession coerced under the threat of torture. The death sentence against her prompted widespread denunciations, and President Hassan Rouhani’s centrist government tried to get the sentence repealed. The justice minister, Mostafa Pourmohammadi, said in early October that efforts to repeal the sentence were underway and that a “good ending” was in sight, although under the Iranian Constitution, his office has no power over the judiciary.

After the execution on Saturday, the prosecutor’s office in Tehran said in a statement that Ms. Jabbari had been hanged under Iran’s “eye-for-an-eye” law because the victim’s family had refused to forgive her, saying that the local news media had portrayed Dr. Sarbandi as a rapist.

According to the statement, the fact that Ms. Jabbari had brought a knife to the meeting with Dr. Sarbandi, and that he had been stabbed in the back, indicated that she had intended to murder him. The statement also said that Ms. Jabbari had sent one of her friends a text message on the night of the doctor’s death saying, “I will kill tonight.”

During the trial, Ms. Jabbari said an accomplice had killed Dr. Sarbandi, but she later retracted that claim.

In a statement before the hanging, Amnesty International said that the investigation had been “deeply flawed” and that Ms. Jabbari’s claims “do not appear to have ever been properly investigated.” Iran ranks second after China in the number of executions, with over 600 people executed in 2013.
