In an interview broadcasted on Iran's state Television, she confessed to adultery and involving to murder her husband. Authorities claimed, she is Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the woman who sentenced to death by stoning.
I watched the interview in native language and there is at least 3 issues within this this televised confession:
1. Her face was obscured so we do not know who exactly the confessor was.
2. I noticed she reads the confession from a printed paper. Why there was a need to read the confession from a printed paper? Couldn't she confess to what she has done without double checking on paper?!
3. At the end she accused her lawyer Mohammad Mostafaei for publicizing her case and said "I sue Mostafaei for damaging my reputation". But the fact of the matter is, Sakine Mohammadi Ashtiani's children, Fasride and Sajjad have appealed to the world to save their mother's life and according to her children, she is very well aware of this.
4. Probably I had to put this above all mentioned items; the lady is already sentenced to death and its confirmed by the Islamic supreme court, why on earth did she come to confess on TV? It is not like that's going to make any difference in her fate. There is no reason on earth that would possibly justify this confession except torture, threats to her children's life or it may be a show confession filmed by someone else.
Islamic Iran is trying to justify its own medieval injustice system by this televised confession and I'm afraid they are going to execute Sakineh soon. After all, these bloody Rotten Gods need human sacrifices, executions and stonings.
Even Mohammad Mostafaei, Sakineh's lawyer had to run for his life and leave the country. In a country that a human rights lawyer is not safe to practice his job, how ordinary people would be able to defend themselves and fight for their right?
In case if you don't know what is stoning, take a look.
