Save "Leila" from execution in Iran
December 2, 2004
Imagine you are a 19 year old woman, faces imminent execution in Iran. What
childhood you have had has been marred with physical and sexual abuse from the
age of 8, giving birth to your first child at the age of 9.
Having become a concubine to an Afghan man at the age of 12, you were forced
into prostitution by him until the age of 14 when you gave birth to twin
You were then given to a 55 year old married man who continued your history of
abuse until your arrest at the age of 18, when you were found guilty of
prostitution. Prostitution carries the death penalty under the filthy Islamic
laws of Iran.
- Your imagination is Leila's real life
The Persian Journal is asking readers to go to
www.Petitiononline.com, to sign an appeal on Leila's behalf based on
principals of Universal Declaration of Human Rights
(http://www.un.org/Overview/rights.html), to which Iran is a signatory.
